The coreference resolution operation allows you to find all expressions in a text that refer to the same entity. For example, the "he" pronoun in "Michael was born in Dubai, and he lives in Spain" is replaced with "Michael" by this operation. As a result, you can identify the entities your pronouns represent in your data to better understand the text.

Step-by-step guide

1. Open the operation configuration window

Click the "Add operation" button at the top of the workspace.

Search for "Resolve coreferences" or find the operation under "Text enrichment" and click it.

2. Choose text input

In the "Text source" part, select the input text you want to process.

3. Choose language

In the "Language" drop-down, select the language of your input text. Currently, English is the only available language for this operation.

4. Name the output field

Under "Output field name,” type the name of the output field.

5. Apply the operation

Click "Apply" to run the operation. The Replaced_text field in the “long text” type is created, and is visible on the Schema. The pronouns are thus replaced with the entities they represent in the output field, and the updated texts are then shown in the Table View workbench.
