A Context-Aware Approach to Entity Linking
June 7, 2012
Entity linking refers to the task of assigning mentions in documents to their
corresponding knowledge base entities. Entity linking is a central step in
knowledge base population. Current entity linking systems do not explicitly
model the discourse context in which the communication occurs. Nevertheless,
the notion of shared context is central to the linguistic theory of pragmatics
and plays a crucial role in Grice’s cooperative communication principle.
Furthermore, modeling context facilitates joint resolution of entities, an
important problem in entity linking yet to be addressed satisfactorily. This
paper describes an approach to context-aware entity linking.
