Coreference Resolution wrapper

Project description

Coreference Resolution wrapper

Coreference Resolution is the task of finding all expressions that refer to the same entity in a text. It is an important step for a lot of higher level NLP tasks that involve natural language understanding such as document summarization, question answering, and information extraction.

This is a simple library that wrap two Coreference Resolution models form StanfordNLP package: the statistic and neural models. We use here the SpaCy package to load the neural model (a.k.a, NeuralCoref), and the stanfordnlp package to load the statistic model (a.k.a, CoreNLPCoref).


pip3 install spacy
pip3 install stanfordnlp
pip3 install wrapperCoreference

StanfordNLP also require the manual downloading of a core of modules, review here for more details.



Example of usage of the neural model

from wrapperCoreference import WrapperCoreference
wc = WrapperCoreference()
wc.NeuralCoref(u'My sister has a dog. She loves him.')
#output: [{'start': 21, 'end': 24, 'text': 'She', 'resolved': 'My sister'}, {'start': 31, 'end': 34, 'text': 'him', 'resolved': 'a dog'}]

Example of usage of the statistic model

from wrapperCoreference import WrapperCoreference
wc = WrapperCoreference()
print(wc.CoreNLPCoref(u'My sister has a dog. She loves him.'))
#output: [{'start': 31, 'end': 34, 'text': 'him', 'resolved': 'a dog', 'fullInformation': [{'start': 14, 'end': 19, 'text': 'a dog'}]}, {'start' : 21, 'end': 24, 'text': 'She', 'resolved': 'My sister', 'fullInformation': [{'start': 0, 'end': 9, 'text': 'My sister'}]}]

Combining the output with Entity Linking

You can use the nifwrapper library in order to merge the coreference outputs with Entity Linking annotations.

from wrapperCoreference import WrapperCoreference
from nifwrapper import *

#---- Obtaining coreferences
wc = WrapperCoreference()
corefResults = wc.NeuralCoref(u'My sister has a dog. She loves him.')
#corefResults = [{'start': 21, 'end': 24, 'text': 'She', 'resolved': 'My sister'}, {'start': 31, 'end': 34, 'text': 'him', 'resolved': 'a dog'}]

#---- Obtaining Entity Linking results
# inline NIF corpus creation
wrp = NIFWrapper()
doc = NIFDocument("")
sent = NIFSentence(",19")
sent.addAttribute("nif:isString","My sister has a dog.","xsd:string")
sent.addAttribute("nif:broaderContext",[""],"URI LIST")

a1 = NIFAnnotation(",19", "14", "19", [""], ["dbo:FamilyRelations"])
a1.addAttribute("nif:anchorOf","a dog","xsd:string")

sent2 = NIFSentence(",35")
sent2.addAttribute("nif:isString","She loves him.","xsd:string")
sent2.addAttribute("nif:broaderContext",[""],"URI LIST")

#---- Combining EL annotations with coreferences 
wrp.extendsDocWithCoref(corefResults, doc.uri)
