Some pointers for Natural Language Processing / Machine Learning
View gist:3888345

Here are the areas I've been researching, some things I've read and some open source packages...

Nearly all text processing starts by transforming text into vectors:

Often it uses transforms such as TFIDF to normalise the data and control for outliers (words that are too frequent or too rare confuse the algorithms):

Collocations is a technique to detect when two or more words occur more commonly together than separately (e.g. "wishy-washy" in English) - I use this to group words into n-gram tokens because many NLP techniques consider each word as if it's independent of all the others in a document, ignoring order:

Spark on Heroku

This guide will get you started using Spark on Heroku/Cedar. Spark is basically a clone of Sinatra for Java. 'Nuff said.

Create your app

Create a single Java main class in src/main/java/

Install Vowpal Wabbit on Mac OS X Lion

The INSTALL instructions that come with Vowpal Wabbit appear not to work on Mac OS X Lion. Here's what I did to get it to compile. You will need the developer tools that come with the XCode installation.

The only dependency VW has is the boost C++ library. So first, download and install Boost

To install Boost, do the following:

$ cp ~/Downloads/boost_1_48_0.tar.bz2 ./
