Named Entity Recognition (NER) is a technology that classifies named entities into certain categories after automatically locating them in a text. These entities can be names of persons, locations, organizations, times, quantities, monetary values, percentages, etc. The creation of these categories can facilitate easy content search by automatically categorizing the articles in predetermined hierarchies.
There are many NER engines on the market and their performance varies and depends on each provider. These engines also have different costs and processing times depending on the provider: it is important to be able to test them before choosing the right one for your project.
By aggregating several NER providers on a single API, Eden AI allows you to use different NER engines at the same time depending on your document.
