Entity extraction is becoming a mission-critical tool for finding mentions of people, places, organizations, and products in massive quantities of text. In patent searches, law enforcement, voice-of-the-customer analysis, ad targeting, content recommendation, e-discovery, and anti-fraud, entity extraction enables swift analysis of gigabytes of data. Among named entity recognition systems, those such as Rosette’s entity extraction function which […]
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.

What is Entity Extraction?
How it’s used and how it works Entity extraction (aka, named entity recognition or NER) is a type of natural language processing technology that enables computers to analyze text as it is naturally written. Specifically, it pulls out the most important data points (entities) in unstructured text (think news, webpages, text fields). Entities include names […]
Linking In-house and Third-party Data to Streamline Success
Are you bumping into the walls of siloed data? Whether your company is grappling with legacy systems that don’t integrate or datasets from third-party sources without common keys, there are ways to create matches in the data that paint a more robust view of your customer, prospect, or person of interest. Consolidating Your In-house Data […]

How to Write Annotation Guidelines for Entity Extraction
Solid annotation guidelines are an essential requirement for producing good training data. These guidelines distinguish correct from incorrect results, define the task and ensure that the annotation process is reliable and repeatable for independent human annotators.
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 […]
Faster Annotation with Rosette Adaptation Studio
What are the top three barriers to better machine learning models? Annotating data, annotating data, and annotating data. Okay, so it’s not that simple, but producing quality training data to produce accurate models takes up the lion’s share of human labor and time in the entire process. This includes collecting and cleaning data, making sure […]
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
Who’s in your data, and how are they connected? You may have heard about relationship extraction and wondered what this NLP innovation is. Relationship extraction is the automated detection and classification of semantic relationships between entities in text. It goes beyond automatically adding metadata to articles, to “writing” profiles and reports about a person, place, […]
