Semantic relation extraction between entity pairs is a crucial task in information extraction from text. In this paper, we propose a new pre-trained network architecture for this task, and it is called the XM-CNN. The XM-CNN utilizes word embedding and position embedding information. It is designed to reinforce the contextual output from the MT-DNN pre-trained model. Our model effectively utilized an entity-aware attention mechanisms to detected the features and also adopts and applies more relation-specific pooling attention mechanisms applied to it. The experimental results show that the XM-CNN achieves state-of-the-art results on the SemEval-2010 task 8, and a thorough evaluation of the method is conducted.
