Named entity recognition (NER) is a process of recognizing, identifying, and extracting useful entities, like person, location and organization for information mining from unstructured texts. This paper presents (Mi-NER), a Malay
language Named Entity Recognition engine that is developed using a probabilistic approach. The results of benchmarking Mi-NER against existing systems are presented in this paper. In addition, the details of the experimental work are highlighted and discussed. Precision, Recall and F-Measure have been used to measure the results for this evaluation.
