—Word disambiguation has been used for various applications. In this paper, disambiguation is used for the new semantic entity extraction system that will be suggested here. For this aim, a new disambiguation method will be introduced. To extract a semantic entity, a background knowledge resource must be used. For this disambiguation, YAGO ontology is used as the state-of-the-art of background knowledge in this field. Since entities in YAGO are meaningful, so in this disambiguation, semantic entities are obtained.
—Disambiguation, semantic entity extraction, YAGO ontology, background knowledge.
