Automatically tagging textual mentions with the concepts, types and entities that they represent are important tasks for which supervised learning has been found to be very effective. In this paper, we consider the problem of exploiting multiple sources of training data with variant ontologies. We present a new transfer learning approach based on embedding multiple label sets in a shared space, and using it to augment the training data.
