Aspect sentiment triplet extraction (ASTE) is a relative difficult and novel research, which is a subtask of aspect-based sentiment analysis (ABSA). ASTE is a task that extracts triplets of aspects being discussed, relevant opinion entities and sentiment polarities from a given sentence. Existing approaches mainly deal with this problem by pipeline or simple multi-task structure, which do not take full advantage of the strong correlation among the three elements of the triplet. In this work, we adopt two special tagging schemes, AOBIO and Pair Tagging Scheme (PTS), and propose an efficient end-to-end multi-task model named Joint Aspect Sentiment Triplet Extraction (JASTE) to address ASTE task. JASTE is composed of three modules: aspect and opinion extraction module, relation module and sentiment module. Specially, the relation module is designed to capture the relationship between aspect and opinion properly. The three modules interact with each other by sharing the same embedding. Extensive experimental results on different benchmark datasets show that JASTE can significantly outperform state-of-the-art performances.
