Due 11:59pm on Tuesday, Sep. 29, 2015

This assignment will have you implement Viterbi decoding algorithm for sequence labeling. The purpose of this homework assignment is to gain familiarity with a structured prediction task and to develop a codebase that you can use in the future. You will implement a named entity recognition (NER) system and evaluate it on the CoNLL 2003 shared task.
