A Study on Named Entity Recognition with OpenNLP at English Texts

Metin Bilgin


Named entity recognition is a subject, inside of information retrieval which is a subdomain of natural processing. It pertains to identifying and labeling of location, person, organization, etc., inside of text content. Named entity recognition provides identifying and classifying of person, area, etc. inside of formal and informal text content and it can be used for different purposes as question answering systems and removal of the relation between events. In this work, named entity recognition is performed and one method is suggested and results are discussed for assignment to unlabeled name entities by using OpenNLP library with the help of KNIME program in the data set.
