What is Entity Linking?

Learn to use the text analytics service from Azure to perform Entity Linking on the text using the SDK.

Entity linking

Azure’s Language service offers another great feature to gather more information about an entity. The entity linking process helps to identify and associate the entity to a pre-defined knowledge base like Wikipedia, DBpedia, etc.

This feature helps to disambiguate the entities identified from the text and provide more information about the entities. For example, if the text is “I went to Seattle yesterday”, then, “Seattle” would be identified as an entity, and a link to Wikipedia will be associated with this entity.
