Now let us use this unzipped directory for testing the Stanford NER library

 

We will be using NetBeans IDE 8.1

 

Open NetBeans and create a new project StanfordNERTest

 

Uncheck Create Main Class check box

 

Refer the next slide for more details

 

Then, Copying NERDemo File

 

Adding JAR File

 

Now we need to add Stanford NER library in the class path to resolve errors

 

Adding JAR File in here.

 

Let’s start the setup process.

 

First download Stanford NER version 3.8.0 using the link provided in previous slide

 

The download is available in zip format and is sized approximately 171 MB

 

Once the download completes unzip the compressed package in some suitable location

 

Now, you can see Unzipped Directory Structure.

 

NLP stands for Natural Language Processing and is related to computer processing of human languages like English

 

NLP is an active topic under Artificial Intelligence (AI) domain

 

Some of the important NLP subtasks include Stop Words Removal, Name Entity Recognition, tokenization etc.

 

Stanford NLP three class Named Entity Recognition includes recognizing names of Persons, Places and Organizations (discussed in this presentation)

 

Stanford NLP also provides four class as well as seven class Name Entity Recognition (not discussed)

      

Name Entity Recognition

 

For more details regarding Stanford NER you can visit https://nlp.stanford.edu/software/CRF-NER.html

 

On this link you can find information like introduction, getting started as well as how to ask questions related to Stanford NER

 

You can also find link to download Stanford NER library along with sample program in Java

 

Here we will provide more details how to use this sample program and perform simple named entities recognition

 

At the time of this presentation the latest NER version is 3.8.0
