Time for action – integrating Stanford NER for Named Entity extraction
Another good place to start writing custom code can be thinking about the integration of a Named Entity Recognizer. For this task, we can adopt the well-known Stanford NER (http://nlp.stanford.edu/software/CRF-NER.shtml). We need to write code to wrap the functionality of this library, and decide it will run at what stage in the internal workflow.
A simple and working idea on how to handle this library with Scala can be found in a good example by Gary Sieling at http://www.garysieling.com/blog/entity-recognition-with-scala-and-stanford-nlp-named-entity-recognizer.
One good choice is to implement it as an update processor or as a language analyzer, and then use it as well as ...
