In many cases, the agent will either not be able to disambiguate some aspect of input (residual ambiguity) or it will have no high-confidence analyses available (incongruity) (for discussion of both of these, see Nirenburg and McShane 2016b).
We have also shown that improved performance results from setting up three zones of acceptance: the first one (0.5 - 1), above which we accept the label directly; the second one (0.4 - 0.5), where we then disambiguate (in the form of a question) between the four destinations proposed by the router; and the third one (0 - 0.4), where the label is rejected directly.
The rules to disambiguate venue is illustrated here:
These authors are difficult to disambiguate even manually due to insufficient or incorrectly parsed author information.

The next year will demonstrate the utility of the synthesis of those technologies to the enterprise--and to each another-in a manner increasingly difficult to disambiguate as organizations continually rely on them.
