This coming Wednesday, June 20:
Steve Bethard will present on Python and Natural Language Processing:
the computational semantics group at the University of Colorado at
Boulder <http://cslr.colorado.edu/> is interested in improving machine
understanding of text by moving past the basic word-level approaches used by
most commercial applications these days. Whether they're teaching computers
how to tell a person from an organization, how to decide what order a set of
events occurred in, or how to convert a document into a complex semantic
graph, Python plays a key role in the process. Steve will be discussing a
number of the uses they've found for Python, including the handling of
complex data formats, modularizing their natural language processing
components, and the different types of feature extraction they perform when
building machine learning models.
Lightning talks for SciPy 2007 <http://www.scipy.org/SciPy2007>. Are
you working on a project combining scientific computing and Python? Feel
free to try out an idea for a talk at SciPy on on our group with a 5-10 min
informal presentation! The SciPy conference is Aug 16-17 at CalTech, and the
deadline for abstracts is June 29.
We will have free food & drink as usual. We're meeting from 6-8 PM at bivio
Software <http://www.bivio.biz/>, which is at 28th and Iris in Boulder,
above Hair Elite in Suite S. Google Maps
And a calendar<http://www.google.com/calendar/embed?src=frpythoneers%2540gmail.com>
For our next meeting (July 18), we will be having presentations showcasing
web frameworks for Python. And we are planning to have a sprint or jam on
Saturday, August 4 around web frameworks. More details to come.
Hope to see you there Wednesday!
