FewRel is a Few-shot Relation classification dataset, which features 70, 000 natural language sentences expressing 100 relations annotated by crowdworkers.

Please refer to our EMNLP 2018 paper to learn more about this dataset.


Baseline models and a series of toolkits are released in this repo:


It is fairly easy for you to get started with FewRel. First, you can download a copy of the dataset by the following links. The dataset is distributed under the CC BY-SA 4.0 license:


Once you have built a model that works to your expectations on the validation set, you can submit it to get official scores on the hidden test set. To preserve the integrity of test results, we do not release the test set labels to the public. Instead, we require you to submit your predicted results so that we can evaluate it. You can submit to the automatic test benchmark:
