Taming Text with Apache Solr and OpenNLP
There is so much text in our lives, we are practically drowning in it. Fortunately, there are innovative tools and techniques for managing unstructured information that can throw the smart developer a much-needed lifeline. In this talk, based on the outline of the book, Grant will provide an introduction to a variety of Java-based open source tools that aide in the development of search and NLP applications.
Presentations on Apache Solr/Lucene will be followed by community member discussions.
