CRF models encompass hidden Markov Band 20 – 2005 47 Hotho, Nürnberger, and Paaß models, but they are much more expressive because they allow arbitrary dependencies in the observation sequence and more complex neighborhood structures of labels. As for most machine learning algorithms a training sample of words and the correct labels is required. In addition to the identity of words arbitrary properties of the words, like part-of-speech tags, capitalization, prefixes and suffixes, etc. may be used leading to sometimes more than a million features. The unknown parameter values λ jr and µ jr are usually estimated using conjugate gradient optimization routines (McCallum 2003). McCallum (2003) applies CRFs with feature selection to named entity recognition and re...
