Entity extraction and disambiguation in finance

James A. Hodson, James Y. Zhang
2014 Proceedings of the first international workshop on Entity recognition & disambiguation - ERD '14  
The task of disambiguation in the financial and business domain is nuanced, covering a variety of pseudo-textual sources from news headlines to company earnings calls, automated telephone announcements  ...  The process of disambiguation is often considered as a canonical problem of resolving entity-mentions into a complete-by-design Knowledge Base (KB).  ...  Currently, state-of-the-art disambiguation systems may range from hundreds of milliseconds per entity, to many seconds.  ...

Entity Linking with Distributional Semantics [chapter]

Pablo Gamallo, Marcos Garcia
2016 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Entity Linking (EL) consists in linking name mentions in a given text with their referring entities in external knowledge bases such as DBpedia/Wikipedia.  ...  Our EL method is focused on a specific task, namely semantic annotation of documents by extracting those relevant terms that are linked to nodes in DBpedia/Wikipedia.  ...  Weighting Candidates and Entity Disambiguation In this task, we select the best entity candidate of each term by making use of a disambiguation strategy.  ...

Entity Linking: Finding Extracted Entities in a Knowledge Base [chapter]

Delip Rao, Paul McNamee, Mark Dredze
2012 Multi-source, Multilingual Information Extraction and Summarization  
In the menagerie of tasks for information extraction, entity linking is a new beast that has drawn a lot of attention from NLP practitioners and researchers recently.  ...  We discuss the key challenges present in this task and we present a high-performing system that links entities using max-margin ranking.  ...  Prior Art Information extraction is concerned with both identifying structured information in text and disambiguating extracted information and entities.  ...

Ontology-based faceted semantic search with automatic sense disambiguation for bioenergy domain

Pathmeswaran Raju, Lynsey Melville, Craig Chapman, Feroz Farazi
2018 International Journal of Big Data Intelligence  
To overcome this issue, this paper proposes a sense disambiguation methodology that uses bioenergy domain related ontologies (extracted from WordNet automatically), WordNet concept hierarchy and term sense  ...  The main hurdle to achieving the expected result was sense disambiguation further complicated by the occasional fine-grained distinction of meanings of the terms in WordNet.  ...  To cope with this situation and give better experience to users, we have developed a sense disambiguation tool that uses WordNet semantic relations, domain ontologies (such as plant, chemistry and finance  ...
