Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning at Google

Using natural language processing and machine learning to look for patterns in free text narratives by Louis Luangkesorn

We look at the narratives of mine accident reports and use the NLTK to analyze the text, then combine the text with categorical information to identify commonly grouped subjects and actions using association rules.

    I raised my hand during our recent meetup for working on pulling together a code-of-conduct. for our group. Several people expressed interest in helping. Yes, please! Email is a good way to reach me: [masked]

    Looking around at other groups' handling of codes of conduct, I'm impressed with Google's writing for their developer groups. Here is a starting point: https://support.google.com/developergroups/answer/3340514?hl=en&ref_topic=3340510

    Hi folks,

    Sorry if I am bothered by my post, but I thought it will be a good platform for my application

    I am designing an application for my class project which will be helpful for event based organisations like MeetUp. My application shows the event information on maps let's say Google map. This application has feature with the help of which one can join the event on the map by directly clicking on location. Usually there will be link to map on the event page but my application is the other way, you go to the map and see the event information with a conspicuous marker on the map and when you click on it you will be able to join the event.

    I am in the phase of feasibility study, collecting feedback and usefulness and any ideas as to what exactly user wants. Any features that you can think of which will be useful for you out of this application Any input would be greatly appreciated

    I started working through the tutorial code for the evening using Python 3, because I am a crazy person. Some of the tutorial stuff wasn't compatible (including the apriori module), so I made a fork and updated it. The branch is a *little* out of date. There is still a commit or two to push, but if you want you can clone it at https://github.com/pmlandwehr/pghpython_nltk_assocrules

      I found a couple of issues. First textclean is not Mac Compatible ಠ_ಠ. I fixed its compatibility issue and the UnicodeDecode error remained so I went along with Dave's method and here is the results

      I have offered these changes in two PRs to the author but it does run to completion in python 2.7 on OSX

      Thanks. Let's move this to github. I'm not going to be that fast, but I will get to it.

      Slides seem to be in the iPython Notebook in the Github repo.

    • Louis

      Yes, this is the best place for the slides. You can open it in the iPython notebook (ipython notebook filename.ipynb will open it in the browser). If you want to see it as reveal.js slides, you can use ipython nbconvert --to slides --post serve filename.ipynb

    I saw a posting previously that some one registered for this meet up wasn't able to enter the Google office because of security. Hence just wanted to check on this if we face any problem entering the office?

      Laura: Thanks. Hope you only gave it up because you can't make it. Hopefully we'll see you next time.

    Hey all,
    Unfortunately I have a conflict and won't be able to attend the meetup. Looking forward to catching the next one!

    If we're still on the waitlist tomorrow, can we hang out downstairs and wait for word on open spots? I work at the TDC on second floor.

      Sure, tweet me (mrstevegross@) around that time and we'll see if there's room.

    This is the first time I've been to this meetup. What is the general format for it? What preparation do I need? And, what do I need to bring? I looked at the Natural Language Tool Kit (http://www.nltk.org/) and I also looked at this graph database http://www.neo4j.org/ (because it seems like it would be a good idea to represent the output of NLP analysis as a graph). I'm a little new to Python, but I think I know it enough to keep up. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks.

      Hi Nathan! Typically, it's handy to bring a laptop if the preso has any hands-on work. We've got lots of newbies, so being new-to-Python won't be a problem.

    I've been using If This Then That to collect all of my texts in a Google spreadsheet for the past 6 months so I'm pretty excited for this.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
