#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.
I want to revive something Teju Cole used to do on birbsite: everyone post photos of whatever's blooming around you, tagged with #florespondence and where you are. Please boost and take part. Making it a reply to me is optional but I'll always enjoy florespondence from all over. Here are the #Seattle daffodils that prompted me to get things started.

Plotting with UnicodeGraphs.jl actually looks pretty nice and it's really fast

Aha! The segfault I kept getting with zypper and network manager using 100% of my cpu were both related to the same thing: a recently updated version of curl that appears to be broken. Downgrading has fixed both issues.
using Revise.jl is essential in julia. I can't believe I haven't been using it all this time.
Thank you for news :)
But as far as I can tell it doesn't have self-hosting yet?
They hope to offer it in the future:
"...an official community project has launched with the goal of ... self-hosting."
but it's not here yet :(
The project link confirms that it's not finished yet:
@adrianomaini Hi welcome!
If you're new here, be sure to read our Community Standards: https://scholar.social/about/more
The rules are different here from other instances, and it's not everyone's cup of tea
But if you read that and think "yes I'm in the right place!" then pull up a chair and make yourself at home :)

So much data
I've proposed to have a #Fedora instance of #Mastodon: https://discussion.fedoraproject.org/t/fedora-in-fediverse/1168
What do you think? Would you join?

Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.
We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities in academia, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.
"An academic microblog that you can be proud to put on the last slide of a presentation at a conference"
(Participation is, of course, optional)
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 @firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
