Why Chinese texts need word segmentation?

Chinese Wrod Segmentation (CWS) is to join Chinese characters into words and seperate them from each other. Take '人工智慧幾乎是一門人文學科' (AI is almost an humanity subject.) for example, after CWS, we expect to get...

AI/幾乎(almost)/是(is)/一門(a)/人文學科(humanity subject)

On the other hand, languages like English has space seperating words from each other in the texts does not require word segmentation processing.

Because of the feature in Chinese text, CWS processing is required to extract the minimal meaningful elements from Chinese text since single character does not directly contribute to the meaning of the whole sentence. Knowing what 'words' are can help us develop further applications such as semantic analysis, maching translation, searching and indexing.

Since CWS is the foundation of Chinese NLP, Droidtown fuses the knowledge between linguistics and computer science and builds a state-of-the-art CWS tool - Articut Chinese Word Segmentation & POS/NER System.
