2016 Shared Task Description
Basic Task Description
Web endpoints are used to collate and disambiguate information about entities, e.g. the following endpoint can be used to refer to Barack Obama:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barack_Obama
Wikipedia has been used extensively for automated entity recognition and disambiguation. But many other endpoints exist for the same entity, e.g.:http://www.nytimes.com/topic/person/barack-obama
The goal of this task is to determine whether two URLs refer to the same underlying entity. For example, the NY Times and Twitter URLs above are entity pages for the same person. However, the following pair are referring to different entities:https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump
