|Cool paper on entity search in vldb. They allow entity search, looking for data like somebody's phone number, returning the numbers and pages supporting it. For example "Amazon Customer Service #phone".,br> They use the surrounding content to detect the entity.|
In order to do this they use the distance from "Amazon Customer Service" to something that looks like a phone number. They also include the quality of the supporting pages.
Then there is this paper which seems to do similar things only on steroids. A much richer extraction and it builds an entity relation graph. Very cool.
