jSRE is a Java tool for Relation Extraction. It is based on a supervised machine learning approach which is applicable even when (deep) linguistic processing is not available or reliable. In particular, jSRE uses a combination of kernel functions to integrate two different information sources: (i) the whole sentence where the relation appears, and (ii) the local contexts around the interacting entities. jSRE requires only a shallow linguistic processing, such as tokenization, sentence splitting, Part-of-Speech (PoS) tagging and lemmatization. The core of jSRE is primarily developed by Claudio Giuliano, Lorenza Romano, and Kateryna Thymoshenko at FBK. Some of jSRE's features include:
- Implements the class of shallow linguistic kernels
- Written in Java, so it runs on Mac OS X, OS/2, Unix, VMS and Windows
- Abstract kernel and data representation interfaces
- Supports user-defined data representation
- jSRE is released as open source, under the terms of the Apache License, Version 2.0.
