Named-entity recognition (NER) aims at identifying entities of interest in a text. [...] Key Method 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.Expand
Transfer Learning for Named-Entity Recognition with Neural Networks
TLDR
It is demonstrated that transferring an ANN model trained on a large labeled dataset to another dataset with a limited number of labels improves upon the state-of-the-art results on two different datasets for patient note de-identification. Expand

Named entity recognition for Icelandic : annotated corpus and neural models
TLDR
This work annotated all named entities in a text corpus of one million tokens to create the first annotated NER corpus for Icelandic, containing around 48,000 named entities, and trained on different sizes of the corpus, to gain an understanding of how increasing corpus sizes affects the results.

Named Entity Recogniser – An Icelandic Prototype
A named entity recogniser finds named entities (proper nouns) in a text, and labels them by category. It is a fundamental tool in natural language processing, in particular in the development ofExpand
Application of a Hybrid Bi-LSTM-CRF model to the task of Russian Named Entity Recognition
TLDR
This work studied several deep neural network models starting from vanilla Bi-directional Long Short-Term Memory then supplementing it with Conditional Random Fields (CRF) as well as highway networks and finally adding external word embeddings to achieve state of the art for the Russian NER task.

Military Text Named Entity Recognition Based on Deep Learning
TLDR
This method mainly uses the recursive neural network model to record the structural advantages of the context and adds the word feature vector to the input layer to complete the named entity recognition in the military text. Expand
