Tutorial: 

GATE (General Architecture for Text Engineering) is a platform for text processing and analysis. Although the primary audience for this software seems to be computer scientists, it also offers some promising possibilities for digital humanities research. We chose to introduce GATE in this course because it provides a relatively intuitive graphical interface for perform- ing Named Entity Recognition and other Natural Language Processing analyses on whole corpora (not just individual texts).

Here are a few NER tools to play with. Most of these will allow you to upload a text file, or paste text into a form.

Tutorial: 

Named Entity Recognition (NER) is a field of computer science that is concerned with the automated extraction of named entities such as places, people, or locations. This tutorial will explain how to use the NER component of the Stanford NLP Tools that are being developed at Stanford University.

For this tutorial you need the Stanford Named Entity Recognizer that you can download here: http://nlp.stanford.edu/downloads/CRF-NER.shtml#Download.
