Introduction

Word spacing is one of the important parts of the preprocessing of Korean text analysis. Accurate spacing greatly affects the accuracy of subsequent text analysis. KoSpacing has fairly accurate automatic word spacing performance, especially good for online text originated from SNS or SMS.

For example.

"아버지가방에들어가신다." can be spaced both of below.

  1. "아버지가 방에 들어가신다." means "My father enters the room."
  2. "아버지 가방에 들어가신다." means "My father goes into the bag."

Common sense, the first is the right answer.

KoSpacing is based on Deep Learning model trained from large corpus(more than 100 million NEWS articles from Chan-Yub Park).

Performance

Test Set Accuracy
Sejong(colloquial style) Corpus(1M) 97.1%
OOOO(literary style) Corpus(3M) 94.3%
  • Accuracy = # correctly spaced characters/# characters in the test data.
    • Might be increased performance if normalize compound words.
