2019 Text Analysis Conference  
HITS and the UKP Lab participated in the Entity Discovery and Linking Track at TAC KBP 2019. The main tasks were Named Entity Detection and Fine Grained Entity Typing, with a large inventory of entity types provided by DARPA AIDA (Active Interpretation of Disparate Alternatives). To address the task we apply a pipeline setup of named entity detection followed by entity typing, which aims to profit from the hierarchical relations present on the type inventory. We provide a description of our modular system and preliminary results on silver data.
