How Our Named Entity Recognition API Works?
Named Entity Recognition API seeks to locate and classify elements in text into definitive categories such as names of persons, organizations, locations. It can extract this information in any type of text, be it a web page, piece of news or social media content.
The API uses Deep Learning technology to determine representations of character groupings.The text to be analyzed is broken into word groups and words are further broken down to character groups and neural network trains on both of these granularities. The hypothesis behind the algorithm is that there are two important aspects which determine if a word is a proper noun, the first is the composition of a word, what syllables it uses and what sounds it comprises of and the second is the adjacent words to the considered word.
