Named Entity Relation Mining using Wikipedia - scientific work related to Wikipedia quality published in 2008, written by Adrian Iftene and Alexandra Balahur-Dobrescu.


Discovering relations among Named Entities (NEs) from large corpora is both a challenging, as well as useful task in the domain of Natural Language Processing, with applications in Information Retrieval (IR), Summarization (SUM), Question Answering (QA) and Textual Entailment (TE). The work authors present resulted from the attempt to solve practical issues authors were confronted with while building systems for the tasks of Textual Entailment Recognition and Question Answering, respectively. The approach consists in applying grammar induced extraction patterns on a large corpus – Wikipedia – for the extraction of relations between a given Named Entity and other Named Entities. The results obtained are high in precision, determining a reliable and useful application of the built resource.
