Combining word and entity embeddings for entity linking (ESWC 2017)(About) The general approach for the entity linking task is to generate, for a given mention, a set of candidate entities from the base and, in a second step, determine which is the best
one. This paper proposes a novel method for the second step which is
based on the **joint learning of embeddings for the words in the text and
the entities in the knowledge base**.
