Abstract: Named Entity Disambiguation (NED) is a crucial task in many Natural Language Processing applications such as entity linking, record linkage, knowledge base construction, or relation extraction, to name a few. The task in NED is to map textual variations of a named entity to its formal name. It has been shown that parameterless models for NED do not generalize to other domains very well. On the other hand, parametric learning models do not scale well when the number of formal names expands above the order of thousands or more. To tackle this problem, we propose a deep architecture with superior performance on NED and introduce a strategy to scale it to hundreds of thousands of formal names. Our experiments on several datasets for alias detection demonstrate that our system is capable of obtaining superior results with a large margin compared to other state-of-the-art systems.
