I did that using bookstack so I can keep a private wiki of what i'm working on.

By the way, I am applying for PhD. If any of you know of vacancies, I am interested.

My interest is in theoretical mathematics. I would like to do something in number theory, geometry and combinatorics. Other than that, I do not have very rigid constraints for a PhD topic.

My master's thesis is about Coding theory. Before that, I did a small project reading about Arithmetic hyperbolic 3-manifolds.

Have you listened to the subtext podcast from Sarah Ellis and Michelle McSweeny?

its so sad google+ couldnt afford to run their instance anymore

With much of industry focused on the specific rather than general capability and a lot of research funding following the direction of industry, I think many have adopted the notion that a system that works for this task is more important.

@pettter
Oh haha my bad. I thought you were more specialized to programming languages. I mean I personally think that hybrid approaches are the way to go in the future. I think that rule based approaches are viewed as not as promising simply because the majority of nlp research doesn't use these methods anymore. Non-linguistically oriented people also tend to prefer to avoid these methods because they require extensive knowledge of how languages work.

@pettter @esther
There are people who analyze human language in terms of context free language or mildly context sensitive with explicit rules. Statistical methods are more popular (and some would say more promising) now.

Oh sorry:/ yeah I havent tried desktop ubuntu lately. That's a bummer that it's so much slower

@JeanManguy
Unless you're referring to more than the desktop manager

@JeanManguy
You could install cinnamon on your existing ubuntu install to make it like mint

@esther
And how many well established equations need to be thrown in there.

Entropy! Gradient descent! Bayes theorem? Why not

The main skill I need to acquire as a grad student in computational linguistics is knowing the *exact* amount of vector shenanigans I need to include in my submission for any given venue in order to be accepted.

Hello, all! I'm an academic librarian at Marquette U. I have two main roles there--supporting digital scholarship and leading the creative/communication side of the library's administration.

My work-related research currently focuses on the relationships between open access publishing and social justice. I'm also interested in languages, especially in relation to print culture. I geek out on visual design, early sound recordings, and learning how to use new digital tools.

Glad to be here!

Scholar Social

A Mastodon instance for academics

Scholar Social is meant 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, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

"A Mastodon profile you can be proud to put on the last slide of a presentation at a conference"

"Official" monthly journal club!

(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 @socrates@scholar.social 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.
