Support pre-annotated document at predict time (Custom Relations)

  1. Watson Health has very good entity extractors but they are in need of relation extractors. 
  2. They would like to train a custom relations model in WKS. Since they already have good entity extractors, it doesn't make sense for them to train an entities model.
  3. The existing entity type system will be imported to WKS as part of the training.
  4. At predict time they will pass entities pre-annotated in the text and only request relations between the entities in response.
  5. The custom relations model will take the pre-annotated entities and return relations between them.
