This paper brings forward two models for person-name entity extraction based on the comparison of math theory between HMM and CRFs, one using word role label based HMM and the other using character role label based CRFs, then validates and compares the effect of both by open-testing and applying in practice, and thereby proves in practice that CRFs is fitter for sequence labeling and object classifying than HMM.

Key wordsHMM      CRFs      Information extraction      Person-name entity extraction      Role label      Feature
