Named entity recognizer is a program that recognizes named entity in text. The named entities could be anything from locations, company or person’s names, drug or disease names, etc.
I would like to state a couple of ideas that I have been thinking in the past number of days regarding what I do, which generally is natural language processing and machine learning. They may be something I am already working on and some ideas for the future and future directions. Only time will tell […]

During the last week I have released a version of Marvin – a tool for semantic annotations, that is able to annotate text using various sources, such as UMLS (using MetaMap), DBPedia, using some SPARQL interface, WordNet and probably most importantly SKOS (Simple Knowledge Organization System ) format for representing lexicons, dictionaries and terminologies. Primarily, the […]
I have participated on Lisbon Machine Learning Summer School (LxMLS), which took place on July 16-23 at Instituto Superior Técnico, a leading Engineering and Science school in Portugal. It is organized jointly by IST, the Instituto de Telecomunicações and the Spoken Language Systems Lab – L2F of INESC-ID. It was quite a great experience, on the […]
We created Marvin, an semantic text annotation tool that uses external resources such as DBPedia and WordNet to annotate semantically text. Marvin is built in java and can be used as a standalone application or as a library. Marvin semantic annotator already has a lot of knowledge, which will make anyone probably depressed and therefore […]
