NeuroNER: an easy-to-use program for named-entity recognition based on neural networks

Franck Dernoncourt, Ji Young Lee, Peter Szolovits

NeuroNER is an easy-to-use named-entity recognition tool based on ANNs. Users can annotate entities using a graphical web-based user interface. The annotations are then used to train an ANN, which in turn predicts entities' locations and categories in new texts.

Abstract

Named-entity recognition (NER) aims at identifying entities of interest in a text. Artificial neural networks (ANNs) have recently been shown to outperform existing NER systems. However, ANNs remain challenging to use for non-expert users. In this paper, we present NeuroNER, an easy-to-use named-entity recognition tool based on ANNs. Users can annotate entities using a graphical web-based user interface (BRAT): the annotations are then used to train an ANN, which in turn predict entities' locations and categories in new texts. NeuroNER makes this annotation-training-prediction flow smooth and accessible to anyone.

Neural Architectures for Named Entity Recognition
State-of-the-art named entity recognition systems rely heavily on hand-crafted features and domain-specific knowledge. In this paper, we introduce two new neural architectures based on bidirectional LSTMs and conditional random fields.

A Survey on Deep Learning for Named Entity Recognition
Named entity recognition (NER) is the task to identify mentions of rigid designators from text belonging to predefined semantic types. NER always serves as the foundation for many natural language applications such as question answering, text summarization, and machine translation.

Robust Lexical Features for Improved Neural Network Named-Entity Recognition
lexical features have been mostly discarded, with the exception of gazetteers. We propose to embed words and entity types into a low-dimensional vector space we train from annotated data produced by Wikipedia. When used with a vanilla recurrent neural network model, this representation yields substantial improvements.

SpeedRead: A Fast Named Entity Recognition Pipeline
SpeedRead(SR) is a named entity recognition pipeline that runs at least 10 times faster than Stanford NLP pipeline. This pipeline consists of a high performance Penn Treebank- compliant tokenizer, close to state-of-art part of speech (POS) and knowledge-based named entity

Interpretability Analysis for Named Entity Recognition to Understand System Predictions and How They Can Improve
Named Entity Recognition systems achieve remarkable performance on domains such as English news. What are these models actually learning to achieve this? Are they merely memorizing the names themselves? Or are they capable of interpreting the text and inferring the correct entity type?
