Figurenerkennung for German literary texts

Project description

Figurenerkennung for German literary texts

Build Status DOI

An important step in the quantitative analysis of narrative texts is the automatic recognition of references to figures, a special case of the generic NLP problem of Named Entity Recognition (NER).

Usually NER models are not designed for literary texts resulting in poor recall. This easy-to-use package is the continuation of the work of Jannidis et al. using techniques from the field of Deep Learning.
