Learning NER from Experts

IES-2015 Paper

This paper was accepted to IES-2015 in Bangkok, Thailand.


Named Entity Recognition (NER) is a foundational technology for systems designed to process Natural Language documents. However, many existing state-of-the-art systems are difficult to integrate into commercial settings (due their monolithic construction, licensing constraints, or need for corpuses, for example). In this work, a new NER system is described that uses the output of existing systems over large corpuses as its training set, ultimately enabling labelling with (i) better F1 scores; (ii )higher labelling speeds; and (iii) no further dependence on the external software.

Poster Version

This version was actually shown as a poster as part of a 'local researchers' competition at the Nvidia ASEAN GPU conference in 2015, where it won 2nd prize : a Titan X (Maxwell) Nvidia GPU!
