Sequence labeling (SL) is a fundamental research problem encompassing a variety of tasks, e.g., part-of-speech (POS) tagging, named entity recognition (NER), text chunking, etc. Though prevalent and effective in many downstream applications (e.g., information retrieval, question answering, and knowledge graph embedding), conventional sequence labeling approaches heavily rely on hand-crafted or language-specific features. Recently, deep learning has been employed for sequence labeling tasks due

In this paper, we aim to present a comprehensive review of existing deep learning-based sequence labeling models, which consists of three related tasks, e.g., part-of-speech tagging, named entity recognition, and text chunking. Then, we systematically present the existing approaches base on a scientific taxonomy, as well as the widely-used experimental datasets and popularly-adopted evaluation metrics in the SL domain. Furthermore, we also present an in-depth analysis of different SL models on the factors that may affect the performance and future directions in the SL domain.
