A Dialogue-Based Relation Extraction Dataset

What is DialogRE

DialogRE is the first human-annotated dialogue-based relation extraction dataset, containing 1,788 dialogues originating from the complete transcripts of a famous American television situation comedy Friends. We annotate all occurrences of 36 possible relation types that exist between an argument pair in a dialogue.

Sample Instances

S1:        Hey Pheebs.
S2:        Hey!
S1:        Any sign of your brother?
S2:        No, but he's always late.
S1:        I thought you only met him once?
S2:        Yeah, I did. I think it sounds y'know big sistery, y'know, `Frank's always late.'
S1:        Well relax, he'll be here.
