Named Entity Recognition
Named Entity Recognition (NER) is the ability to extract entities from pieces of text. Entities can be many things but most often they are people, places and temporal derivatives.
An implementation I have used with SolR is here https://opennlp.apache.org/documentation/1.5.3/manual/opennlp.html#tools.namefind.recognition
I would like to see something similar in Azure Search.
Imagine you are an investigator and you have a load of documents which potentially could yield clues. Being able to extract the entities from documents could mean being able to recognise
Imagine then being able to take those entities and put them into a graph database.
Thank you for the feedback.
We have started integrated NER capabilities as part Cognitive Search, and we’ll add more entities in the upcoming months.

this is done, isn't it? I saw NER in the JFK data....
