class NerDLApproach extends AnnotatorApproach[NerDLModel] with NerApproach[NerDLApproach] with Logging with ParamsAndFeaturesWritable with EvaluationDLParams

This Named Entity recognition annotator allows to train generic NER model based on Neural Networks.

The architecture of the neural network is a Char CNNs - BiLSTM - CRF that achieves state-of-the-art in most datasets.

For instantiated/pretrained models, see NerDLModel.

The training data should be a labeled Spark Dataset, in the format of CoNLL 2003 IOB with Annotation type columns. The data should have columns of type DOCUMENT, TOKEN, WORD_EMBEDDINGS and an additional label column of annotator type NAMED_ENTITY. Excluding the label, this can be done with for example

Setting a test dataset to monitor model metrics can be done with .setTestDataset. The method expects a path to a parquet file containing a dataframe that has the same required columns as the training dataframe. The pre-processing steps for the training dataframe should also be applied to the test dataframe. The following example will show how to create the test dataset with a CoNLL dataset:

val documentAssembler = new DocumentAssembler()
  .setInputCol("text")
  .setOutputCol("document")

val embeddings = WordEmbeddingsModel
  .pretrained()
  .setInputCols("document", "token")
  .setOutputCol("embeddings")

val preProcessingPipeline = new Pipeline().setStages(Array(documentAssembler, embeddings))

val conll = CoNLL()
val Array(train, test) = conll
  .readDataset(spark, "src/test/resources/conll2003/eng.train")
  .randomSplit(Array(0.8, 0.2))

preProcessingPipeline
  .fit(test)
  .transform(test)
  .write
  .mode("overwrite")
  .parquet("test_data")

val nerTagger = new NerDLApproach()
  .setInputCols("document", "token", "embeddings")
  .setLabelColumn("label")
  .setOutputCol("ner")
  .setTestDataset("test_data")

For extended examples of usage, see the Spark NLP Workshop and the NerDLSpec.

Example

import com.johnsnowlabs.nlp.base.DocumentAssembler
import com.johnsnowlabs.nlp.annotators.Tokenizer
import com.johnsnowlabs.nlp.annotators.sbd.pragmatic.SentenceDetector
import com.johnsnowlabs.nlp.embeddings.BertEmbeddings
import com.johnsnowlabs.nlp.annotators.ner.dl.NerDLApproach
import com.johnsnowlabs.nlp.training.CoNLL
import org.apache.spark.ml.Pipeline

// This CoNLL dataset already includes a sentence, token and label
// column with their respective annotator types. If a custom dataset is used,
// these need to be defined with for example:

val documentAssembler = new DocumentAssembler()
  .setInputCol("text")
  .setOutputCol("document")

val sentence = new SentenceDetector()
  .setInputCols("document")
  .setOutputCol("sentence")

val tokenizer = new Tokenizer()
  .setInputCols("sentence")
  .setOutputCol("token")

// Then the training can start
val embeddings = BertEmbeddings.pretrained()
  .setInputCols("sentence", "token")
  .setOutputCol("embeddings")

val nerTagger = new NerDLApproach()
  .setInputCols("sentence", "token", "embeddings")
  .setLabelColumn("label")
  .setOutputCol("ner")
  .setMaxEpochs(1)
  .setRandomSeed(0)
  .setVerbose(0)

val pipeline = new Pipeline().setStages(Array(
  embeddings,
  nerTagger
))

// We use the sentences, tokens and labels from the CoNLL dataset
val conll = CoNLL()
val trainingData = conll.readDataset(spark, "src/test/resources/conll2003/eng.train")

val pipelineModel = pipeline.fit(trainingData)

  151. def setTestDataset(er: ExternalResource): NerDLApproach.this.type

    ExternalResource to a parquet file of a test dataset.

    ExternalResource to a parquet file of a test dataset. If set, it is used to calculate statistics on it during training.

    When using an ExternalResource, only parquet files are accepted for this function.

    The parquet file must be a dataframe that has the same columns as the model that is being trained. For example, if the model needs as input DOCUMENT, TOKEN, WORD_EMBEDDINGS (Features) and NAMED_ENTITY (label) then these columns also need to be present while saving the dataframe. The pre-processing steps for the training dataframe should also be applied to the test dataframe.

    An example on how to create such a parquet file could be:

    // assuming preProcessingPipeline
    val Array(train, test) = data.randomSplit(Array(0.8, 0.2))
    
    preProcessingPipeline
      .fit(test)
      .transform(test)
      .write
      .mode("overwrite")
      .parquet("test_data")
