Resource-Size matters: Improving Neural Named Entity Recognition with Optimized Large Corpora

26 Jul 2018Sajawel AhmedAlexander Mehler

This study improves the performance of neural named entity recognition by a margin of up to 11% in F-score on the example of a low-resource language like German, thereby outperforming existing baselines and establishing a new state-of-the-art on each single open-source dataset. Rather than designing deeper and wider hybrid neural architectures, we gather all available resources and perform a detailed optimization and grammar-dependent morphological processing consisting of lemmatization and part-of-speech tagging prior to exposing the raw data to any training process...
