Extracting Parts-of-Speech and Named Entities
Automatically list the nouns, verbs, adjectives, people, places, and things from any text.
Knowing the parts-of-speech (nouns, verbs, adjectives, etc.) associated with a given text enables you to answer questions such as, “what is discussed in this document”, “what do they do”, and “how do they do it”? Knowing the named entities (people, places, organization, dates, times, dollar amounts, etc.) associated with a given text enables you to answer those same questions more thoroughly.
This hands-on workshop will demonstrate and facilitate the use of a locally-developed tool to extract parts-of-speech and named entities from any plain text file. Participants will then learn how to use a free program called OpenRefine to sort and search through the results. Take this workshop, and your “reading” abilities will begin to take on new dimensions.
Please bring your own computer or borrow a laptop from the Circulation desk.
