TAC KBP 2013 Entity Linking Track
The entity linking task is to link name mentions of entities in a document collection to entities in a reference KB, or to new named entities discovered in the collection. The document collection will comprise a combination of newswire articles and posts to blogs, newsgroups, and discussion fora. Given a query that consists of a document with a specified name mention of an entity, the task is to determine the correct node in the reference KB for the entity, adding a new node for the entity if it is not already in the reference KB. Entities can be of type PER (person), ORG (organization), or GPE (geopolitical entity).
In addition to monolingual English entity linking, cross-lingual entity linking tasks will be offered in Chinese (Chinese and English documents, English reference KB) and Spanish (Spanish and English documents, English reference KB).
