I want to add new entities to python spacy NER module. I have few doubts regarding this.
Is it possible to remove some of the presently existing entities and add new entities to the remaining ones.
While training new entities, I found we have to provide training data in a particular format. For example,
data = [ ("I love chicken", [(8, 13, "FOOD")]), ... ]
Instead of sentences like "I love chicken", is it possible to give data like
data = [ ("chicken", [(1, 8, "FOOD")]), ... ]
Will this affect accuracy.
