#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.
Oh no. I think my travel reimbursement may have been sent as a check to my parents' address. They're not the best at letting me know I have mail
Sent out my first qualifying exam submission working on the second. Hopefully they approve it :/
Personal milestone Show more
As fall textbook orders roll in and lead to requests for reprints from the little publishers out there, I've re-rendered four of my book covers.
I updated my spreadsheet yesterday and realized that I've been designing scientific textbook covers as my side gig for 10 years* now.
You might own one of mine.
*10 years ago I naively designed my thesis advisor's textbook in RGB instead of CMYK, in a color palette that does not interconvert well at all.
Was a learning experience.
Just because you're being contrarian
Doesn't mean you have said anything interesting!!!
FOSS culture hot take Show more
@HerraBRE Also, "our great-grandparents by and large had this sorted" is, put mildly, a really bad hot take. If all your Respect, Manners, Courtesy and Professionalism literally only apply to White Men, what's that worth?
I know you've been shouting down this argument before, feel free to block me as well, but it actually is the core of the problem that is addressed by these movements. (Being vague here because there's so many different ones)
If you accidentally make eye contact with a librarian while returning a book in the slot, should you just hand it to them?
Aww darn. I'm not listed as a student in my department on the cl page. Just shows how out of date it is. Haha
HeyLow, everyone! I'm a "just-joined" Twitter defector.
I live in Northwest Indiana, which is part of the Chicagoland area. I completed a doctorate August 31 and I'm still tired. Probably because I'm a late bloomer being that I'm 52 yrs old. 😬 My research focus is online learning environments--most recently, online undergraduate student perspectives of faculty behaviors.
I'm attempting to enter higher education as faculty/adjunct faculty/researcher in an online environment.
- a microSD card weighs somewhere around 0.4g
- the highest capacity microSD that's easily available is 256GB
- a trebuchet can throw a 90kg projectile over 300m
90kg worth of microSD cards is 225,000 of them
Therefore a trebuchet can throw 57.6PB of data over 300m
This would have the highest throughput of any telecommunications network ever created
This instance is way snappier now!

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.
Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @email@example.com and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
