NIST TAC Knowledge Base Population (KBP2015) Entity Discovery and Linking Track


The Entity Discovery and Linking (EDL) track at NIST TAC-KBP2015 aims to extract named entity mentions from a source collection of textual documents in multiple languages (English, Chinese and Spanish), and link them to an existing Knowledge Base (KB).  An EDL system is also required to cluster mentions for those NIL entities that don't have corresponding KB entries.

What's New

  • The source collection is in three languages (English, Chinese and Spanish) instead of English only.
  • New KB (Freebase Snapshot)
  • Add Location and Facility entities (all three languages)
  • Add Person nominal mentions (English only)
