Distant supervised relation extraction (RE) has been an effective way of finding novel relational facts from text without labeled training data. Typically it can be formalized as a multi-instance multi-label problem.In this paper, we introduce a novel neural approach for distant supervised (RE) with specific focus on attention mechanisms.Unlike the feature-based logistic regression model and compositional neural models such as CNN, our approach includes two major attention-based memory

Experiment on real-world datasets shows that our approach performs significantly and consistently better than various baselines.
