NAMED ENTITY RECOGNITION IN TURKISH VIA INDUCTIVE LOGIC PROGRAMMING
Published: 29 Jul 2017
Abstract: In this paper we concentrate on recognition of named entities in Turkish text using Inductive Logic Programming (ILP) algorithm. One of the main tasks of Information Extraction (IE) is the Named Entity Recognition (NER) which aims to locate and classify the named entities (i.e. person, location, organization names, date-time expressions) in text. ILP is a research area at the intersection of machine learning and logic programming. It uses techniques from both machine learning and logic programming. We have adopted a machine learning paradigm, namely ILP, to approach the task of NER in Turkish. This paper presents the performance results of ILP experiments we have conducted on Turkish data and a comparative evaluation of these results.
