Evaluation utilities for named entity linking and (cross-document) coreference resolution

Project Description

Entity linking evaluation

Python evaluation scripts for TAC entity linking and related wikification, named entity disambiguation, and within- and cross-document coreference tasks.

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.

See a list of commands with:

./nel --help

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

./scripts/run_tac14_evaluation.sh \
    /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.
