Named Entity Recognition for Icelandic

In this project a BERT model is applied to an Icelandic NER corpus. The model is evaluated using 10-fold cross-validation, and from this evaluation an F1-score of 89.24 is obtained.

Neural Networks

The Back-propagation Algorithm

Implementation of the back-propagation algorithm using only the linear algebra and other mathematics tool available in numpy and scipy. We will restrict ourselves to fully-connected feed forward neural networks with one hidden layer (plus an input and an output layer).
