AMELI: Enhancing Multimodal Entity Linking with Fine-Grained Attributes


We propose attribute-aware multimodal entity linking, where the input is a mention described with a text and image, and the goal is to predict the corresponding target entity from a multimodal knowledge base (KB) where each entity is also described with a text description, a visual image and a set of attributes and values. To support this research, we construct AMELI, a large-scale dataset consisting of 18,472 reviews and 35,598 products. To establish baseline performance on AMELI, we experiment with the current state-of-the-art multimodal entity linking approaches and our enhanced attribute-aware model and demonstrate the importance of incorporating the attribute information into the entity linking process. To be best of our knowledge, we are the first to build benchmark dataset and solutions for the attribute-aware multimodal entity linking task. Datasets and codes will be made publicly available.
