Coreference resolution

Coreference resolution (i.e., resolving coreferences) is a task of clustering (i.e., matching) mentions that refer to the same entity. A mention represents a reference to an underlying entity that is mentioned in a text as a noun entity, using a pronoun, or is implicitly contained in a verb form (i.e., Slovene language specific). The result of the task are clusters of mentions, where each cluster represents one entity. Coreference resolution algorithms need to be able to process the whole document at once as they need to understand the discourse at a higher semantic level - pragmatics, in order to achieve good results. In addition to name entity recognition and link extraction, this is a more challenging information extraction task.
