This task is known as Named Entity Recognition. It seeks to locate and classify named entity mentions in unstructured text into pre-defined categories such as the person names, organizations, locations and so on.
In this particular project, you will be  given a single text file  containing multiple news articles. The goal is to scan each article for the names of people and print results following several conditions such as sorting, whitespaces, blank lines, etc.
Additionally, you are requested to implement functions to count, modify and add characters to the results.

You will receive an email with a protected  ZIP  and a password to access the content. If you are a  registered user, the download is always available on your account.
1) One PDF with the project description along with hints to guide you during the project.
2) A .py file with the project solved. It contains not only the source code but also detailed explanations and comments about how the code
works. For specific topics, links are provided to online tutorials.
3) Two .txt files with the output of the code and the dataset with the news articles.

– Libraries: you will have to work with the next libraries: Spacy, re, datetime.
– Python functions, loops (for) and  conditional statements (if/else).
– Read csv, txt files (with open()), list comprehensions and dictionaries.

– Basic Regular Expressions
– Argparse when running from the Linux command line.
