The Yahoo! Shortcuts module can be used to perform entity detection (person, place, or concept) in a data source. This Pipe demonstrates an example use case. First, the Yahoo! entertainment news feed is retrieved. Then, the Yahoo! Shortcuts module analyzes the descriptions of each item for popular entities. Using the filter module we restrict the Yahoo! Shortcuts output to only entities identified as a person. Finally, using the Yahoo! Search module the name associated with each person is searched against IMDB.com and biographical details are returned.
