Named entity recognition (NER)

Named entity recognition (NER) is a process of recognizing and extracting named entities in an unstructured text. These entities (categories) could be among others person names, time expressions, organizations, quantities, locations, currencies, percentages, etc. Identifying these entities is an essential part of text processing.
