#introductions Hey everyone. I am a PhD Student in Computational Linguistics. My main research interest is computational linguistics for under resourced languages. I am particularly interested in computational linguistics for Bantu languages because of the extremely complex morphology that they bring to the table.
I am also doing research in sentiment analysis on stance detection and irony/sarcasm detection. Most of my research is on machine learning approaches.
"Hong Kong protests are in their fifth month despite an escalating crackdown. How? One surprising answer: the fate of China's Uyghurs. Many talked to me about it. They watched and learned. They've decided that they 'may as well go down fighting.' My latest." - Zeynep Tufekci on Twitter (https://twitter.com/zeynep/status/1194361687828242433)
Great primer on using Traits in Julia:
...demonstrating again the amazing powers of multiple dispatch.
How do I integrate native libraries in #JuliaLang? I got some answers, building a wrapper for a linear optimization solver along the way http://matbesancon.github.io/post/2019-11-04-binary-julia/
The definitive R package for determining gender from somebody's name has been released! Amazing. https://dapperstats.github.io/gendrendr/index.html #rstats
The next batches of the #PinebookPro are now shipping!
The next pre-order window opens on November 5th. A choice of ANSI and ISO keyboards will be available in this batch. So if you've been holding out for a correctly shaped Enter key (can you tell I'm an American? 😉), now will be the time to order!
