Subject [UK OFFICIAL] Baleen 2.1 Released
Date Tue, 15 Dec 2015 11:40:33 GMT
Classification: UK OFFICIAL
Morning all,

A new version of Baleen, the UIMA based entity extraction and text analytics framework developed
by Dstl (part of the UK Ministry of Defence) has been released. This version includes the
following improvements:

*         New Annotator: MongoStemming uses a gazetteer and stemming to perform a pseudo-fuzzy
match and find gazetter terms in different tenses and plurals

*         New Cleaner: MergeAdjacent will merge adjacent entities of the same type

*         New Content Extractor: CsvContentExtractor splits CSV fields into content and metadata

*         New Collection Reader: LineReader will read a single file into multiple documents
by line

*         New REST API to get configuration parameters for components (e.g. annotators)

*         Significant changes to the way gazetteer annotators work, including changing from
RadixTrees to MultiMaps and implementing the Aho-Corasick algorithm, resulting in performance
improvements for large gazetteers in the order of 100s

*         Lots of bug fixes and minor improvements

The latest release is available on GitHub: https://github.com/dstl/baleen

Any feedback, suggestions, comments, issues and code contributions are welcome! We're keen
for people to help us improve it so that it's a useful tool for a wide range of people.
