EntityAuthority: Semantically Enriched Graph-Based Authority Propagation
This paper pursues the recently emerging paradigm of searching for entities that are embedded in Web pages. We utilize informationextraction techniques to identify entity candidates in documents, map them onto entries in a richly structured ontology, and derive a generalized data graph that encompasses Web pages, entities, and ontological concepts and relationships. We exploit this combination of pages and entities for a novel kind of search-result ranking, coined EntityAuthority, in order to improve the quality of keyword queries that return either pages or entities. To this end, we utilize the mutual reinforcement between authoritative pages and important entities. This resembles the HITS method for Web-graph link analysis and recently proposed ObjectRank methods, but our approach operates on a much richer, typed graph structure with different kinds of nodes and also differs in the underlying mathematical definitions. Preliminary experiments with topic-specific slices of Wikipedia...
