In this paper we introduce a deep neural network architecture to perform information extraction on character-based sequences, e.g. named-entity recognition on Chinese text or secondary-structure detection on protein sequences. With a task-independent architecture, the deep network relies only on simple character-based features, which obviates the need for task-specific feature engineering. The proposed discriminative framework includes three important strategies, (1) a deep learning module… CONTINUE READING
