Tag: Entity Extraction

Entity extraction  is the process of identifying words in a given text that refer to people, places, products, organizations, etc. by using different extraction methods such as statistical or deep neural network processors, exact match processors, and pattern matching processors. When used together with entity resolution, the extracted words can be mapped to real life entities.

How to Write Annotation Guidelines for Entity Extraction

Writing annotation guidelines for entity extraction for adverse media screening in financial compliance As much as we love to think our machine learning algorithms are the most important part of training up a model, they need human-annotated data to get started, which also — very importantly — are the benchmark for evaluating a model’s accuracy.

Building a More Useful Hebrew Transliteration Scheme

When the Rosette® Name Translator team set out to build a Hebrew-to-Latin character translator, one of the first considerations was: Which Hebrew transliteration standard should we use? As the joke goes, “Standards are great because there are so many to choose from.” The existing Hebrew transliteration standards, ISO 259-2:1994 and UNGEGN (United Nations Group of […]

What’s the Difference Between Entity Extraction (NER) and Entity Resolution?

Entity extraction, or named entity recognition (NER), is finding mentions of key “things” (aka “entities”) such as people, places, organizations, dates, and time within text. Entity mentions are the words in text that refer to entities, such as “Bill Clinton,” “White House,” and “U.S.” Entity resolution (aka, entity linking) takes it one step further and […]

The Most Effective Entity Extraction Techniques

A hybrid of entity extraction methods to compensate for various strengths and weaknesses Just as you would never use a screwdriver to insert a nail, each type of entity is most accurately extracted by a different approach. There are many ways to extract entities, but no one universal solution for all entities. Different extraction methods […]

Provide Live Feedback to Your Entity Linking Knowledge Bases

Rosette Entity Linking adds real-time, human-in-the-loop feature to entity linking databases While entity extraction provides the foundation of data mining and information extraction systems, extracted entities only have limited value out of context. Understanding not just what entity strings are included in your data but also the real-world entity they link back to is vital […]

Understanding the Difference Between Open and Targeted Relationship Extraction
