Entity Disambiguation in Text by YAGO Ontology

Farhad Abedini and Seyedeh Masoumeh Mirhashem

Abstract—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.

Index Terms—Disambiguation, semantic entity extraction, YAGO ontology, background knowledge.
