Add "confidence-level" to the Stanbol Enhancement Structure


    • Type: New Feature

      The "confidence-level" is intended to make it easier for clients to
      decide how to process Enhancements. It would not use a numerical range
      but four distinct values:

      • confident: Meaning that a match is very likely - indicating that
        those annotations typically can be accepted automatically (e.g. If the
        EntityLinking engine finds a single Entity that exactly matches the
        text selected by an text annotation)
      • ambiguous: Meaning that there are several possibilities but is is
        still likely that one of them match (e.g. Paris, Paris (Texas))
      • suggestion: Meaning that the match is not completely certain, but
        there are not several options (e.g. Germans -> Germany)
      • uncertain: Meaning that Entities do match, but the probability of a
        match is rather speculative (e.g. John -> Elton John)

      IMHO using this classification would fit a lot of engines much better
      as the numeric "fise:confidence" property as it does not rise the
      expectation in users that confidence values are on a rational scale
      (e.g. a Enhancement with a confidence of "0.8" is not two times as
      likely as one with "0.4").
