Recognizing Ultra Fine-grained Entities (RUFES) 2022

Conducted by:
U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)

With support from:
U.S. Department of Defense


A goal of TAC KBP is to extract mentions of pre-defined entity types from any language, and cluster together mentions of the same entity. Many real world applications in scenarios such as disaster relief and technical support require systems that recognize a wide variety of entity types (e.g., different types of vehicles, various diseases, and biomedical entities) with limited training data for each type. The KBP2022 RUFES task (Recognizing Ultra Fine-grained EntitieS) challenges systems to recognize name, nominal, and pronominal mentions of entities in news articles, from an ontology with over 300 types that cover a variety of topics in the news. In addition, humans will provide "feedback" on system output, which can be used to improve each system.
