Employing Wikipedia Data for Coreference Resolution in Russian

Conference paper
Part of the Communications in Computer and Information Science book series (CCIS, volume 789)

Abstract

Semantic information has been deemed a valuable resource for solving the task of coreference resolution by many researchers. Unfortunately, not much has been done in the direction of using this data when working with Russian data. This work describes the first step of a research, attempting to create a coreference resolution system for Russian based on semantic data, concerned with using Wikipedia information for the task. The obtained results are comparable to ones for English data, which gives reasons to expect their improvement in further steps of the research.
