Deep Learning approaches for Named Entity Recognition


Vijay Ramakrishnan


Using a Bi-Directional LSTM network we were able to achieve state of the art accuracies on Named Entity Data on WNUT 2016 Twitter Noisy data.


  • Introduction on Named Entity Recognition and why it is important for voice assistants
  • Introduction on prior approaches taken for NER
  • Describe the LSTM model and how it’s better than existing approaches
  • Demo the model on Tensorflow
