AIDA: Accurate Online Disambiguation of Named Entities in Text and Tables
Stay up to date with AIDA news and releases, send a mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org
AIDA is a framework and online tool for entity detection and disambiguation. Given a natural-language text or a Web table, it maps mentions of ambiguous names onto canonical entities (e.g., individual people or places) registered in the YAGO2 knowledge base.
To experimentally verify the quality of AIDA, we annotated nearly 1,400 newswire articles with the entities mentioned in each article. This collection is available for download (see Downloads).

AIDA JSON Web Service
We provide a HTTP JSON web service for AIDA so that you can try it out without any hassle of setting it up. It's as easy as:
curl --data text="Dylan was born in Duluth." https://gate.d5.mpi-inf.mpg.de/aida/service/disambiguate
More information is available in our web service description.
Please do not use it for comparison in scientific papers or for running time experiments, as the service changes continuously. If you want to compare AIDA for research, please download it and set it up on your own machines.

AIDA can be tested online, with different methods and configurations for entity disambiguation: AIDA Demo
Please use either Firefox or Chrome to view the Demo.
In the EMNLP 2011 paper, the results are given on the subset of 228 CoNLL testb documents wich could be processed by all the competitor methods (1270testb, 1308testb, and 1349testb are missing). We did this for the sake of comparability. The results of our AIDA methods on all 231 CoNLL testb documents are given below. The short names are the same as in the paper.
