The entity linking task (or Wikification) aims at identifying all the small text fragments in a document referring to an entity contained in a given knowledge base, e.g., Wikipedia. Dexter is an open source framework that implements some popular algorithms and provides all the tools needed to develop any entity linking technique. We believe that a shared framework is fundamental to perform fair comparisons and improve the state of the art.

For more information/demo/api see the project page.
