Hide For the Mars release, we are introducing a new Eclipse installer. This is a new and more efficient way to install Eclipse. It is a proper installer, so no more zip files, with a self extracting download that will lead you through the installation experience. For those not into installers, we still have the packages and zip files available on our download pages. 1. Eclipse is hosted on many mirrors around the world. 2. For Windows users, after the Eclipse Installer executable has finished downloading it should be available in your download directory. For Mac and Linux users, you will still need to unzip the download to create the Installer. 3. The new Eclipse Installer shows the packages available to Eclipse users. Select and click on the package you want to install. 4. Specify the folder where you want Eclipse to be installed. Select the ‘Install’ button to begin the installation. 5. Once the installation is complete you can now launch Eclipse.

Choosing the right Python Integrated Development Environment This blog is solely intended to be used as a reference to learn which Python integrated development environment (IDE) might be best for you or your organization. Since there are many IDEs to choose from, picking the right one can very well depend on the platform you use (Windows or Linux), specific features, or the cost. However, one thing is true, whether you are writing a single script or many scripts for a large project, a Python IDE will accelerate your development time and it’s strongly recommended you use one. At a minimum, a good IDE will have the following features: Lucene - Apache Lucene Core Apache LuceneTM is a high-performance, full-featured text search engine library written entirely in Java. It is a technology suitable for nearly any application that requires full-text search, especially cross-platform. Apache Lucene is an open source project available for free download. Please use the links on the right to access Lucene. Lucene offers powerful features through a simple API: Scalable, High-Performance Indexing

IntegratedDevelopmentEnvironments Please keep wiki links as wiki links, use external links only if there is no existing page for the IDE. See also Wikipedia's list of Python IDEs and these ShowMeDo videos for Wing 3 Professional SPE, PyDev (inside Eclipse) and IPython. Take a look at PythonEditors if you prefer something lightweight. IDEs that don't integrate anything Python-specific are also listed at PythonEditors#Glorified_Editors. CategoryIntegratedDevelopmentEnvironment CategoryEditors CategoryIntegratedDevelopmentEnvironment Text Analysis Conference (TAC) The Text Analysis Conference (TAC) is a series of evaluation workshops organized to encourage research in Natural Language Processing and related applications, by providing a large test collection, common evaluation procedures, and a forum for organizations to share their results. TAC comprises sets of tasks known as "tracks," each of which focuses on a particular subproblem of NLP. TAC tracks focus on end-user tasks, but also include component evaluations situated within the context of end-user tasks. TAC currently hosts evaluations and workshops in two areas of research:

Kodu Game Lab An overview of Kodu. (Click to play) Kodu lets kids create games on the PC and Xbox via a simple visual programming language. Kodu can be used to teach creativity, problem solving, storytelling, as well as programming. Anyone can use Kodu to make a game, young children as well as adults with no design or programming skills.

Automatic Content Extraction Automatic Content Extraction (ACE) is a program for developing advanced Information extraction technologies. Given a text in natural language, the ACE challenge is to detect: entities mentioned in the text, such as: persons, organizations, locations, facilities, weapons, vehicles, and geo-political entities.relations between entities, such as: person A is the manager of company B.

A review of 6 Python IDEs Impressions PyDev If you like Eclipse, PyDev is a decent choice (provided, of course, that you have a suitably beefy machine). If you are unfamiliar with Eclipse, good luck with the learning curve; you'll need it. PyDev is the only IDE reviewed where features such as code completion will not work unless you add the .py files to the PyDev project.

Message Understanding Conference The Message Understanding Conferences (MUC) were initiated and financed by DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) to encourage the development of new and better methods of information extraction. The character of this competition—many concurrent research teams competing against one another—required the development of standards for evaluation, e.g. the adoption of metrics like precision and recall. Topics and Exercises[edit] Python for Android: The Scripting Layer (SL4A) The Scripting Layer for Android, SL4A, is an open source application that allows programs written in a range of interpreted languages to run on Android. It also provides a high level API that allows these programs to interact with the Android device, making it easy to do stuff like accessing sensor data, sending an SMS, rendering user interfaces and so on. It's is really easy to install and it works on any stock Android device, so you don't need to be root or anything like that. Currently, the Scripting Layer supports Python, Perl, Ruby, Lua, BeanShell, JavaScript and Tcl. It also provides access to the Android system shell, which is actually just a minimal Linux shell. You can find out more about the SL4A project from their website.

Information retrieval Information retrieval is the activity of obtaining information resources relevant to an information need from a collection of information resources. Searches can be based on metadata or on full-text (or other content-based) indexing. Automated information retrieval systems are used to reduce what has been called "information overload". Many universities and public libraries use IR systems to provide access to books, journals and other documents. Web search engines are the most visible IR applications. Overview[edit]
