This version supports English, French, German, Italian and Spanish, with an in-house Named Entity Recognizer for English and French. The knowledge base includes 37 million entities from Wikidata.
Runtime: on local machine (Intel Haswel i7-4790K CPU 4.00GHz - 8 cores - 16GB - SSD)
800 pubmed abstracts (172 787 tokens) processed in 126s with 1 client (1371 tokens/s)
4800 pubmed abstracts (1 036 722 tokens) processed in 216s with 6 concurrent clients (4800 tokens/s)
136 PDF (3443 pages, 1 422 943 tokens) processed in 1284s with 1 client (2.6 pages/s, 1108.2 tokens/s)
816 PDF (20658 pages, 8 537 658 tokens) processed in 2094s with 6 concurrent clients (9.86 pages/s, 4077 tokens/s)
Accuracy: f-score for disambiguation only between 76.5 and 89.1 on standard datasets (ACE2004, AIDA-CONLL-testb, AQUAINT, MSNBC) - to be improved in the next versions.
The knowledge base contains more than 1 billion objects, not far from 15 millions word and entity embeddings, however entity-fishing will work with 3-4 GB RAM memory after a 15 second start-up for the server (but please use SSD!).
Have a look at our presentation at WikiDataCon 2017 for some design and implementation descriptions.
