Abstract：Current manual segmented microblog-oriented corpora are inadequate, so both conventional Chinese word segmentation (CWS) systems and deep learning based CWS systems are still not very effective. This paper presents an active learning method that selects samples with high annotation values from unlabelled tweets for microblog-oriented CWS. A parameter is introduced to control the number of repeatedly selected samples that offen occur in microblog data. Three strategies (Max, Avg and AvgMax) are used to evaluate the overall values of each sample. The initial segment character is a stop character which is calculated by taking character embeddings into consideration. Tests demonstrate that this method outperforms the baseline system with F Gains of 0.84%~1.49% and state-of-the-art active learning method word boundary annotation (WBA).
