Entity Linking technologies often rely on rich structures and properties in the target knowledge base (KB). However, in many applications, the KB may be as simple and sparse as lists of names of the same type (e.g., lists of products) -> the List-only entity linking problem
List-only Entity Linking - ACL Anthology (2017)(About) Proposes to tackle the problem of List-only Entity Linking through seed mentions (mentions
that we are confident to link). Other mentions are disambiguated by comparing them with the seed mentions rather than directly with the entities.
