Named Entity Recognition (NER) — AI for Marketers


Named Entity Recognition (NER): What is it?

Named Entity Recognition is a subtask of information extraction in natural language processing that seeks to locate and classify named entities in text into predefined categories such as person names, organizations, locations, medical codes, time expressions, quantities, monetary values, percentages, etc.

What are some use cases for Marketers?

Marketers can use NER to analyze customer feedback, social media posts, or news articles to identify mentions of their brand, competitors, products, or relevant events.

What are the advantages for Marketers who understand Named Entity Recognition (NER)?

NER can provide valuable insights from text data, helping marketers monitor brand mentions, understand customer feedback, and keep track of market developments.

What are the challenges related to Named Entity Recognition (NER)?

NER can struggle with ambiguous or context-specific entities, and may require training on domain-specific data to achieve optimal performance.

Examples of applying Named Entity Recognition (NER) for Marketers

In the sentence “Apple Inc. is planning to open a new store in New York next month.”, a NER model would identify “Apple Inc.” as a company, “New York” as a location, and “next month” as a time expression.

The future of Named Entity Recognition (NER)

The continuing refinement of NER techniques will further enhance their ability to extract valuable insights from text data for marketers.
