Master Thesis: Enhancing Domain Specific Entity Linking (Nanni/Ponzetto)

Title: Enhancing Domain Specific Entity Linking

Target: Master

Type: Experiments

Introduction/problem: Entity linking could improve text exploration and information retrieval in DH. However, currently DH researchers are limited to annotate texts with entity links that are represented by Wikipedia.

Goal: Develop a domain-adaptable entity linking pipeline and evaluate performances.

Approach: Re-implementation of TagMe algorithm and development of a pipeline that where the knowledge base can be easily changed.

Requirements: Confidence in programming (web scraping, Wikipedia dump processing) and knowledge of supervised classification algorithms and text processing.
