Universal NER

Universal Named Entity Recognition (UNER) aims to fill a gap in multilingual NLP: high quality NER datasets in many languages with a shared tagset.

UNER is modeled after the Universal Dependencies project, in that it is intended to be a large community annotation effort with language-universal guidelines. Further, we use the same text corpora as Universal Dependencies.
