Learning Ensembles of First-Order Clauses for Recall-Precision Curves: A Case Study in Biomedical Information Extraction
Many domains in the field of Inductive Logic Programming (ILP) involve highly unbalanced data. Our research has focused on Information Extraction (IE), a task that typically involves many more negative examples than positive examples. IE is the process of finding facts in unstructured text, such as biomedical journals, and putting those facts in an organized system. In particular, we have focused on learning to recognize instances of the protein-localization relationship in Medline abstracts. We view the problem as a machine-learning task: given posinegative extractions from a training corpus of abstracts, learn a logical theory that performs well on a held-aside testing set. A common way to measure performance in these domains is to use precision and recall instead of simply using accuracy. We propose Gleaner, a randomized search method which collects good clauses from a broad spectrum of points along the recall dimension in recall-precision curves and employs an “at least N of th...
