This paper describes our system for SemEval-2023 Task 2 Multilingual Complex Named EntityRecognition (MultiCoNER II). Our teamSamsung Research China - Beijing proposesan AL-R (Adjustable Loss RoBERTa) model toboost the performance of recognizing short andcomplex entities with the challenges of longtaildata distribution, out of knowledge base andnoise scenarios. We first employ an adjustabledice loss optimization objective to overcomethe issue of long-tail data distribution, which isalso proved to be noise-robusted, especially incombatting the issue of fine-grained label confusing. Besides, we develop our own knowledgeenhancement tool to provide related contextsfor the short context setting and addressthe issue of out of knowledge base. Experimentshave verified the validation of our approaches.

The Visual Word Sense Disambiguation (VWSD) shared task aims at selecting the image among candidates that best interprets the semantics of a target word with a short-length phrase for English, Italian, and Farsi. The limited phrase context, which only contains 2-3 words, challenges the model’s understanding ability, and the visual label requires image-text matching performance across different modalities. In this paper, we propose a prompt based and multimodal retrieval enhanced VWSD system, which uses the rich potential knowledge of large-scale pretrained models by prompting and additional text-image information from knowledge bases and open datasets. Under the English situation and given an input phrase, (1) the context retrieval module predicts the correct definition from sense inventory by matching phrase and context through a biencoder architecture. (2) The image retrieval module retrieves the relevant images from an image dataset.(3) The matching module decides that either text or image is used to pair with image labels by a rule-based strategy, then ranks the candidate images according to the similarity score. Our system ranks first in the English track and second in the average of all languages (English, Italian, and Farsi).
