Named entity recognition for Vietnamese
Named Entity Recognition is an important task but is still relatively new for Vietnamese. It is partly due to the lack of a large annotated corpus. In this paper, we present a systematic approach in building a named entity annotated corpus while at the same time building rules to recognize Vietnamese named entities. The resulting open source system achieves an F-measure of 83%, which is better compared to existing Vietnamese NER systems. © 2010 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
