what is BIO Tags for creating custom NER Named entity recognization?

It is easy. You need to tag a phrase using B (Begin), I (Interior), and E (End). For example, you want to tag "United States of America" as the name of a country. You will tag likes: ...

Difference between IOB and IOB2 format?

The difference is not related to the length of the named entities. Rather, it deals with how two adjacent named entities of the same type are labeled. In IOB1 (IOB), B- is only used to separate two ...

Is a BiLSTM layer required if we use BERT?

That layer isn't required indeed as it also encodes the sequence, albeit in a different way than BERT. What I assume is that in a BERT-BiLSTM-CRF, setup, the BERT layer is either frozen or difficult ...
