Transforming Wikipedia into Named Entity Training Data is a 2008 conference paper by Joel Nothman, James R. Curran, Tara Murphy and published in Australian Language Technology Workshop.

[edit] Abstract

Statistical named entity recognisers require costly hand-labelled training data and, as a result, most existing corpora are small. We exploit Wikipedia to create a massive corpus of named entity annotated text. We transform Wikipedia’s links into named entity annotations by classifying the target articles into common entity types (e.g. person, organisation and location). Comparing to MUC, CONLL and BBN corpora, Wikipedia generally performs better than other cross-corpus train/test pairs.
