The volume of structured data has rapidly grown in recent years, when data-entity emerged as an abstraction that captures almost every data pieces. As a result, searching for a desired piece of information on the web could be a challenge in term of time and relevancy because the number of matching entities could be very large for a given query. This project concerns with the efficiency and effectiveness of such entity queries. The work contains two major parts: implement inverted indexing strategies so that queries can be searched in minimal time, and rank results based on features that are independent of the query itself.
