Resolve extracted entities back to Wikipedia or your preferred knowledge base

Entity Linking


What is entity linking?

Entities are the key actors in your text data: the people, organizations and locations that are mentioned in your content. Using a synthesis of established text analysis best practices and machine learning statistical modeling, Rosette uncovers these entities, delivering structure, clarity, and insight to your data.

Rosette uses the linked information to resolve entity ambiguity in three ways:

  • For entities with more than one name, Rosette groups them together as “synonyms”
  • For names that reference more than one entity, Rosette uses context to determine which one is the right one
  • Rosette connects information about an entity within and across documents

Linking with your own source

Rosette uses Wikipedia as its default link source, but you can replace it or add to it with one of your own, for example, a custom database, watchlist, or employee list.

Metadata enrichment

Rosette adds metadata from the linking process to your text, including confidence measures for each of the linking decisions, that can be used to power entity-centric search and notification, track new entities in text streams, and build custom knowledge graphs.
