According to the Tutorial "Training a custom ENTITY LINKING model with spaCy" (20:33) this is the training data format for spaCy's Entity Linker:

TRAIN_DATA = ("Emerson was born on a farm in Blackbutt, Queensland.", {"links": {(0, 7): { "Q312545": 1.0 }}})

My search for open source annotation tool is not successful. Do you know an open source/free annotation tool for this format?

  • $\begingroup$ Do the earlier parts of the video not show you how to setup and annotate data using spaCy's annotation tool Prodigy? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Yes with Prodigy. But it is unfortunately not free or open-source (prodi.gy/docs). $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I would probably use a different open source annotation tool such as doccano to annotate your data and create a custom script to convert their format to the format spaCy expects. $\endgroup$
