As the number of published scienti c papers grows everyday, there is also an increasing necessity for automated named entity recognition (NER) systems capable of identifying relevant entities mentioned in a given text, such as chemical entities. Since high precision values are crucial to deliver useful results, we developed a NER method, Identifying Chemical Entities (ICE), which was tuned for precision. Thus, ICE achieved the second highest precision value in the BioCreative IV CHEMDNER task… CONTINUE READING
