Slides of the talk I gave at PyData Amsterdam.
"The FD Mediagroep collects, analyses and filters valuable and relevant information, 24/7, for an influential group of professionals, business executives and high net worth individuals. Company.info (part of FDMG) provides complete, reliable, up-to-date company information and business news about no less than 2.7 million companies and other legal entities in the Netherlands. For Company.info we continuously monitor and crawl hundreds of (online) news sources, resulting in a large archive of (Dutch) business-related news, spanning hundreds of thousands of articles. These articles are automatically enriched, by linking the profiles of companies that are mentioned in the articles, using a custom in-house entity linking framework built in Python. In this talk, I will briefly explain the entity linking task, I will detail the implementation of our custom entity linking framework, and our pipeline for crawling and enriching news articles."
