Bidirectional long-short term memory and conditional random field for tourism named entity recognition

Annisa Zahra, Ahmad Fathan Hidayatullah, Septia Rani


The common thing to do when planning a trip is to search for a tourist destination. This process is often done using search engines and reading articles on the internet. However, it takes much time to search for such information, as to obtain relevant information, we have to read some available articles. Named entity recognition (NER) can detect named entities in a text to help users find the desired information. This study aims to create a NER model that will help to detect tourist attractions in an article. The articles used for the dataset are English articles obtained from the internet. We built our NER model using bidirectional long-short term memory (BiLSTM) and conditional random fields (CRF), with Word2Vec as a feature. Our proposed model achieved the best with an average F1-Score of 75.25% compared to all scenarios tested.
