End-to-end Sequence Labeling via Bi-directional LSTM-CNNs-CRF

ACL 2016 Xuezhe MaEduard Hovy

State-of-the-art sequence labeling systems traditionally require large amounts of task-specific knowledge in the form of hand-crafted features and data pre-processing. In this paper, we introduce a novel neutral network architecture that benefits from both word- and character-level representations automatically, by using combination of bidirectional LSTM, CNN and CRF...
