pygame GATE.ac.uk - index.html STAR Laboratory: SRI Language Modeling Toolkit SRILM is a toolkit for building and applying statistical language models (LMs), primarily for use in speech recognition, statistical tagging and segmentation, and machine translation. It has been under development in the SRI Speech Technology and Research Laboratory since 1995. The toolkit has also greatly benefitted from its use and enhancements during the Johns Hopkins University/CLSP summer workshops in 1995, 1996, 1997, and 2002 (see history). These pages and the software itself assume that you know what statistical language modeling is. Either book gives an excellent introduction to N-gram language modeling, which is the main type of LM supported by SRILM. SRILM consists of the following components: A set of C++ class libraries implementing language models, supporting data stuctures and miscellaneous utility functions. SRILM runs on UNIX and Windows platforms. SRILM has been used in a great variety of statistical modeling applications. Documentation SRILM is still under development.
Astropython nltk.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/doc/book/ch00.html This is a book about Natural Language Processing. By "natural language" we mean a language that is used for everyday communication by humans; languages like English, Hindi or Portuguese. In contrast to artificial languages such as programming languages and mathematical notations, natural languages have evolved as they pass from generation to generation, and are hard to pin down with explicit rules. Technologies based on NLP are becoming increasingly widespread. This book provides a highly accessible introduction to the field of NLP. The book is based on the Python programming language together with an open source library called the Natural Language Toolkit (NLTK). Audience NLP is important for scientific, economic, social, and cultural reasons. This book is intended for a diverse range of people who want to learn how to write programs that analyze written language, regardless of previous programming experience: Emphasis This book is a practical introduction to NLP. What You Will Learn
Semantic Search in 2025 Tim Berners-Lee first spoke of a Semantic Web at his address at the first World Wide Web Conference in 1994. Given the technical level of the audience, his presentation was, for the most part, met with excited nods. The Web Berners-Lee described was a far cry from the library-style repository of the Web at that time, but the concept wasn't so far-fetched, at least to the listeners with a more visionary nature. "Semantic", however, is a qualifier that means a great deal in this context. Indeed, for a machine to comprehend the meaning behind what a human has put to text, requires a certain amount of artificial intelligence. The Other Approach Looking at the issue strictly from the standpoint of achieving a semantic search capability, it seemed that rather than trying to teach a computer how to think like a human, it would probably be much easier to teach humans how to present data in a format that a machine could understand.
