Subject [jira] [Commented] (OPENNLP-78) NameFinder and Dictionary Integration
Date Wed, 14 Mar 2012 17:40:39 GMT


Jim Piliouras commented on OPENNLP-78:

The proposed feature would be simply awesome!!! If the 2 can be integrated into a single object
that implements "TokenNameFinderEvaluator" then the evaluator will automatically work for
the enhanced NER without any weird workarounds!!! I think being able to get your statistics
using both dictionary and maxent is a massive improvement! In fact, i think i might be able
to help with the code starting from the 22th of March. OOP is not really my thing (lisp (corrupted?
me)) but i do have experience with Java...

>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: Name Finder

>            Priority: Minor
> Now that we have a NameFinder Dictionary and improved NameFinder tools; it would be nice
to be able to integrate the dictionary and model to help improve the finding of names.
> This way, the name finder could be trained more on the surrounding text instead of attempting
to memorize common names in the news that occur frequently.
> I've already got the name finder corpus, created the dictionaries with the data from
the US Census.
> I just need to implement some method to help train the model; or be able to use the dictionaries
post model creation to help with the finding of names.
