In scientific cooperation network, ambiguous author names may occur due to the existence of multiple authors with the same name. Users of these networks usually want to know the exact author of a paper, whereas we do not have any unique identifier to distinguish them. In this paper, we focus ourselves on such problem, we propose a new method that incorporates user feedback into the model for name disambiguation of scientific cooperation network. Perceptron is used as the classifier. Two features and a constraint drawn from user feedback are incorporated into the perceptron to enhance the performance of name disambiguation. Specifically, we construct user feedback as a training stream, and refine the perceptron continuously. Experimental results show that the proposed algorithm can learn continuously and significantly outperforms the previous methods without introducing user interactions.
