Adobe Research at ACL-IJCNLP 2021

August 2, 2021

In this ACL 2021 paper, Adobe Research and university collaborators propose a new method which enhances entity and relation extraction by joining a system-generated draft entity graph and a prior knowledge graph.

The Joint Conference of the 59th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics and the 11th International Joint Conference on Natural Language Processing (ACL-IJCNLP 2021) will be held virtually from August 2 to 4, 2021. ACL-IJCNLP is one of the top research conferences on natural language processing. In recent years, deep learning approaches have been prominently featured in the papers presented at this conference.

Adobe Research will present a total of 7 papers at the main conference, 5 papers in the Findings category, and 1 workshop paper on research topics including question answering, information extraction, machine learning, natural language processing, computational argumentation, image captioning, common-sense reasoning, machine learning fairness, dependency parsing, and many more. 

Nearly all of Adobe’s papers are the results of student internships or other collaborations with university students and faculty. Check out the Adobe Research internships and full-time careers pages to learn more about opportunities to work with us.
