The Project

The project

OpeNER is a project funded by the European Commission under the FP7 (7th Framework Program). Its acronym stands for Open Polarity Enhanced Name Entity Recognition. It is a two year duration project which officially started at July 2012, and finishes at July 2014. In OpeNER are collaborating partners from Italy, Holland and Spain.

OpeNER’s main goal is to provide a set of ready to use tools to perform some natural language processing tasks, free and easy to adapt for SMEs to integrate them in their workflow. More precisely, OpeNER aims to be able to detect and disambiguate entity mentions and perform sentiment analysis and opinion detection on the texts, to be able for example, to extract the sentiment and the opinion of customers about certain resource (e.g. hotels and accommodations) in Web reviews.
