Entity linking evaluation
Python command-line evaluation scripts for TAC
entity linking and related wikification, named entity disambiguation, and
within- and cross-document coreference tasks.
It aims for fast and flexible coreference resolution and
sophisticated named entity recognition evaluation, such as partial scores
for partial overlap between gold and system mentions. CEAF, in particular, is
much faster to calculate here than in the CoNLL-11/12 scorer. It boasts features
such as configurable metrics; accounting for or ignoring cross-document
coreference (see the evaluate --by-doc flag); plotting to compare
evaluation by system, measure and corpus subset; and bootstrap-based confidence
interval calculation for document-wise evaluation metrics.
Requires that python (2.7, with Py3k support experimental/partial)
be installed on your system with numpy (and preferably scipy for
fast CEAF calculation) and joblib. matplotlib is required for
the plot-systems command.

Or install onto your Python path (e.g. with
pip install git+https://github.com/wikilinks/neleval) then
python -m neleval --help
TAC-KBP 2014 EDL quickstart
/path/to/gold.xml \ # TAC14 gold standard queries/mentions
/path/to/gold.tab \ # TAC14 gold standard link and nil annotations
/system/output/directory \ # directory containing (only) TAC14 system output files
/script/output/directory \ # directory to which results are written
number_of_jobs # number of jobs for parallel mode
Each file in in the system output directory is scored against gold.tab.
Similar facility is available for TAC-KBP‘15 EDL.
