Reference resolution on extended texts (several thousand references) cannot be evaluated manuall y. An evaluation algorithm has been proposed for the MUC tests, using equivalence classes for the coreference relation. However, we show here that this algorithm is too indulgent, yielding good scores even for poor resolution strategies. We elaborate on the same formali sm to propose two new evaluation algorithms, comparing them first with the MUC algorithm and giving then results on a variety of… CONTINUE READING
