Entity linking (EL) is the process of linking entity mentions appearing in web text with their corresponding entities in a knowledge base.
In natural language processing, entity linking also referred to as named-entity linking (NEL), named-entity disambiguation (NED), named-entity recognition, and disambiguation (NERD) or named-entity normalization (NEN) is the task of assigning a unique identity to entities (such as famous individuals, locations, or companies) mentioned in the text. For example, given the sentence “Paris is the capital of France”, the idea is to determine that “Paris” refers to the city of Paris and not to Paris Hilton or any other entity that could be referred to as “Paris”.
