This paper investigates the new problem of automatic sense induction for instance names using automatically extracted at- tribute sets. Several clustering strategies and data sources are described and eval- uated. We also discuss the drawbacks of the evaluation metrics commonly used in similar clustering tasks. The results show improvements in most metrics with re- spect to the baselines, especially for pol- ysemous instances.
