We present an online cascaded approach to biomedical named entity recognition. This approach uses an online training method to substantially reduce the training time re- quired and a cascaded framework to relax the memory requirement. We conduct de- tailed experiments on the BioNLP dataset from the JNLPBA shared task and com- pare the results with other systems and pub- lished works. Our experimental results show that our approach achieves comparable per- formance with great reductions in time and space requirements.
