Personal name disambiguation becomes hot as it provides a way to incorporate semantic under- standing into information retrieval. In this cam- paign, we explore Chinese personal name disambiguation in news. In order to examine how well disambiguation technologies work, we con- centrate on news articles, which is well-formatted and whose genre is well-studied. We then design a diagnosis test to explore the impact of Chinese word segmentation to personal name disambigua- tion.
