Getting Started with Project Entity Linking
Sometimes in different contexts, a word might be used as a named entity, a verb, or other word form within a given sentence. For example, in the case where “times” is a named entity, it still may refer to two separately distinguishable entities, such as “The New York Times” or “Times Square”. Project Entity Linking improves the user experience on your app by linking text to additional information on the web. The API recognizes and disambiguates proper nouns within input text and links them to a prebuilt knowledge base. The illustration below shows an example of how the service works: specifically, when using Wikipedia, Project Entity Linking detects all entities mentioned within the input text and links them to relevant reference points according to the page ID.
