Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

We describe a system, UNN-WePS for identifying individuals from web pages us- ing data from Semeval Task 13. Our sys- tem is based on using co-presence of per- son names to form seed clusters. These are then extended with pages that are deemed conceptually similar based on a lexical chaining analysis computed using Roget’s thesaurus. Finally, a single link hierarchical agglomerative clustering algorithm merges the enhanced clusters for individual entity recognition.
