This talk introduces the challenges and opportunities in matching entity graphs, such as multilingual name graphs and social network graphs, as novel data-rich solutions to difficult tasks such as name translation or social id finding. We will show how these data-rich solutions outperform existing model-rich state-of-the-arts. We present our evaluation results using real-life entity graphs and discuss future directions.
