As supervised machine learning methods are increasingly used in language technology, the need for high-quality annotated language data becomes imminent. Active learning (AL) is a means to alleviate the burden of annotation. This paper addresses the problem of knowing when to stop the AL process without having the human annotator make an explicit decision on the matter. We propose and evaluate an intrinsic criterion for committee-based AL of named entity recognizers.
