English title
Named Entity Disambiguation in Slovak

Thesis deals with the topic of named entity recognition and disambiguation. A basic system was created which includes all prequisitions necessary for named entity disambiguation in Slovak language. Part of the system is building of a knowledge base out of an export from Slovak Wikipedia. This was subsequently compared to knowledge base obtained from Wikidata, which revealed that the main contribution of Wikipedia knowledge base for Slovak language is greater coverage of entities with link to Slovak Wikipedia and better determination of entity classes. Apart from that, morfological dictionary of KNOT@FIT research group was updated, which yielded an improvement by 33-39 %. This work presumes possible utilization in relation to system extention by a disambiguation modul and enhancement of alternative names coverage.
