Neural Architectures for Named Entity Recognition

NAACL 2016 Guillaume LampleMiguel BallesterosSandeep SubramanianKazuya KawakamiChris Dyer

State-of-the-art named entity recognition systems rely heavily on hand-crafted features and domain-specific knowledge in order to learn effectively from the small, supervised training corpora that are available. In this paper, we introduce two new neural architectures---one based on bidirectional LSTMs and conditional random fields, and the other that constructs and labels segments using a transition-based approach inspired by shift-reduce parsers...
