hey! I’m interested in working on CLTK for google summer of code. Never really occurred to me how useful NLP techniques could be for scholars of the ancient world

Hi Nelson, terrific to hear from you! What are you interested in working on? If you're not sure, we can talk and help guide you. What programming languages do you know? And can you read any ancient languages?

I can’t read any ancient languages, unfortunately. It’d be interesting to learn though! I’m not too sure what specifically in cltk I’m interested in working on yet, but probably something computational. I’ll talk a bit about my background and perhaps you could suggest something?
I’m a current student at the University of Washington, and I’m a member of Noah Smith’s ARK research group currently working on NLP for social science. I’m a fairly active contributor to scikit-learn, and am generally familiar with python and java (though I would be happy to learn something new if that’s the best tool for the job).

Hi Everyone! CLTK sounds like a very cool project to me. I am a beginner programming enthusiast interested for GSOC. I happen to take keen interest in learning languages and I have studied Sanskrit for five years. It will be awesome if you could guide me so that I can use my language and programming skills for the project.
I have built a Chrome Extension in Javascript from scratch that analyses crowdsourced data to skip boring parts of University Video Lectures to summarize hour long videos into snippets of important topics, hence I am comfortable in handling functional programming and using it in real life projects. I am exposed to NLP but I would still regard myself as a beginner. Do you think I can contribute to the project?

haha I’m looking at the list of projects, and I feel like lots of the linguistics projects are very computationally based?
lots of core ML / nlp problems

Hey everyone!! am very much interested to contribute in this organisation.As last summer i did an intern in NLP and deep learning . I used python and theano framework .I coded things like ngram model and language translation between english and germany using LSTM and RNN model .
@kylepjohnson i would like to work on Linguistic projects "Improve lemmatizer" or on "Extend CLTK core to new language" so if you could guide me few things to start.

@coderbhupendra hi, could you elaborate or point me to your work on translation using lstm and rnn ?

should i tell it over this channel. So idea was i had corpus for english and i made a dictionary of top 10,000 words and then i used neural network to learn embedding for words . like in wordtovec, depending upon the word correlation with other words , words which have same meaning will end up learning same embedding vectors

so using this idea if we use a LSTM (long short term memory ) which are used when we want to convert sequence of words into a feature vector. After that i used a Encoder and decoder LSTM , encoder to encode a english sentence to a feature vector and then decoder to decode it to a german sentence using words which are present in german dictionary only.

Hello world. I'm a software programmer. I'm used to read and write code in Java, python and JavaScript. I also happen to speak both French and English. How can I help?
