tract: Relation classification (RC) task is one of fundamental tasks of information extraction, aiming to detect the relation information between entity pairs in unstructured natural language text and generate structured data in the form of entity-relation triple. Although distant supervision methods can effectively alleviate the problem of lack of training data in supervised learning, they also introduce noise into the data, and still cannot fundamentally solve the long-tail distribution problem of the training instances. In order to enable the neural network to learn new knowledge through few instances like humans, this work focuses on few-shot relation classification (FSRC), where a classifier should generalize to new classes that have not been seen in the training set, given only a number of samples for each class. To make full use of the existing information and get a better feature representation for each instance, we propose to encode each class prototype in an adaptive way from two aspects. First, based on the prototypical networks, we propose an adaptive mixture mechanism to add label words to the representation of the class prototype, which, to the best of our knowledge, is the first attempt to integrate the label information into features of the support samples of each class so as to get more interactive class prototypes. Second, to more reasonably measure the distances between samples of each category, we introduce a loss function for joint representation learning to encode each support instance in an adaptive manner. Extensive experiments have been conducted on FewRel under different few-shot (FS) settings, and the results show that the proposed adaptive prototypical networks with label words and joint representation learning has not only achieved significant improvements in accuracy, but also increased the generalization ability of few-shot RC models.
