NERVE is an application that performs Named Entity Recognition (NER), allowing users new to Linked Open Data (LOD) to find and reconcile entities in a document. NERVE suggests relevant Uniform Resource Identifiers (URIs) for entities, so users can reconcile data to an authority in order to turn it into LOD.

Users of NERVE:

  • Do not need to come with their own dataset
    • Since NERVE opens with a preloaded example, users need to upload their own text if they wish to perform NER on their own work.
  • Need to create a GitLab or GitHub account
  • Do not need to have technical knowledge

NERVE supports the following inputs and outputs:

  • Input: XML
  • Output: To be determined

Information about the team that developed NERVE is available on the Tool Credits page.
