#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.

Great overview of the topic! And the sheer volume of links he had for hated that service is was amusing.
awesome #julialang tool

Ordinarily, julia does jit compilation. You are compiling highly specialized versions of functions at runtime. This can be a bit annoying for start up times since the compiler has to jit compile everything the first time you call a function. Fezzik watches what you do until you tell it to build and then it compiles a new julia image with the packages and functions you used. Start up is so fast now!
Voynich manuscript news always seems exciting at first... then we're deflated. https://arstechnica.com/science/2019/05/no-someone-hasnt-cracked-the-code-of-the-mysterious-voynich-manuscript/
@bgcarlisle how essential is speaking French in Montreal?
