DRIM: Named Entity Recognition for German using Support Vector Machines

  • This paper describes the DRIM Named Entity Recognizer (DRIM), developed for the GermEval 2014 Named Entity (NE) Recognition Shared Task. The shared task did not pose any restrictions regarding the type of named entity recognition (NER) system submissions and usage of external data, which still resulted in a very challenging task. We employ Linear Support Vector Classification (Linear SVC) in the implementation of SckiKit, with variety of features, gazetteers and further contextual information of the target words. As there is only one level of embedding in the dataset, two separate classifiers are trained for the outer and inner spans. The system was developed and tested on the dataset provided by the GermEval 2014 NER Shared Task. The overall strict (fine-grained) score is 70.94% on the development set, and 69.33% on the final test set which is quite promising for the German language.
