NERU: Named Entity Recognition for German

  • In this paper, we present our Named Entity Recognition (NER) system for German – NERU (Named Entity Rules), which heavily relies on handcrafted rules as well as information gained from a cascade of existing external NER tools. The system combines large gazetteer lists, information obtained by comparison of different automatic translations and POS taggers. With NERU, we were able to achieve a score of 73.26% on the development set provided by the GermEval 2014 Named Entity Recognition Shared Task for German.
