[Study Group] Stanford Natural Language Processing Class

  • Jan 23, 2012 · 6:00 PM

Hello Fellow NLP Study Group!

You may have received an update email from Dan Jurafsky and Christopher Manning or seen Marco's note about it.  Either way we're delayed a little, which is fine.  Also, some have suggested a google+ hangout.  So let's take this time to explore that idea and get the technical hiccups out of the way and perhaps decide if that's a good idea for this study group's environment.  It certainly would make things transportation easy!  So I scheduled a regular public hangout with http://gphangouts.com/ for every Monday at 6pm.  You can see the schedule and get the instructions to join the hangout here.

I look forward to meeting you virtually.

Please send your agenda ideas in the meantime here's a rough agenda for the meeting :

Agenda

  1. Introductions and state goal for the semester.
  2. Discuss Group Goals for the semester.
  3. Create expectations, rules and guidelines
  4. Review Course Description and prerequisites found here - http://www.nlp-class.org/
  5. Set Agenda for the next Study Group.

Cheers,

- Todd

PS - Has anyone bought the recommended textbook yet?  $104 on Amazon!

---------------

NOTE: Apologies for changing the time, I promise to return the Thursday schedule, I just thought that it would be better have an organizational first meeting after the course is open to all of us and to make sure everyone attending is on the same page.  After we get through the logistics and organization, I'd like to discuss individual and group goals for the study group.

------

This is a study group meeting and not a regular meetup event with a presentation etc. In the first event the group will discuss the online schedule and the curriculum for the Stanford Natural Language Processing Class as part of the local study group in New York. Please indicate if you plan to attend the study group to allow the host to plan accordingly.

 

If you would like to enroll in the Natural Language Processing Online Class with Chris Manning and Dan Jurafsky please visit and register on the Stanford University site here:

    Hi Marco -- I pinged Todd (waiting to hear back) but in the meantime set up a G+ page for just this study group at https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/116285457636347619439/116285457636347619439/about

    If anyone "follows" (or circles") this page I'll add them to a Study Group circle. We can then use that circle to announce hangouts for meetups or created threaded discussions (or set agendas) between meetups.

    Let me know if that makes sense (I can always delete it if not :-))

  • Marco N.

    sure if you take care of it and tell us how this circle thing works efficiently for us.

    March 21, 2012

  • Nitya N.

    Hi Marco -- sure thing. Maybe one thing we can do is set up a Google+ circle around the group to support auxiliary sharing and discussion *outside meetup dates* as well. Would that be a useful thing?

    March 21, 2012

  • Marco N.

    can you get in touch with Todd and coordinate?

    March 21, 2012

  • Nitya N.

    Hi folks - now that the NLP class has kicked off, is there any interest in revisiting a study group around this, possibly with Google+ Hangouts as an option?

    March 21, 2012

  • Marco N.

    thank you for joining. Todd will post an update with details on the mailing list soon

    Oh man. Just caught the last few seconds. Hopefully next time I will be more punctual. Btw, since we're doing this online anyway, why don't we do it at a more convenient time, like around 8PM, or maybe on weekends? Any thoughts?

    I could swear this was at 6:30. So I missed it. Also....I am trying to connect right now at 6:38 but the page is timing out. Is it over already?

    By having a public hangout published on gphangouts.com, won't anybody on the internet be able to wander in? Maybe a better alternative would be to create a named hangout and publish on the lotico-list.

    Hi Volkan, Yes, we're shooting for Monday to try to do a google+ hangout. Having never done an online study group, I thought it would help clear the hiccups and we can discuss some of the logistics of the study group. I've updated the meetup description with instructions and an agenda.

    so this is happening tomorrow? i thought we'd wait for the class to start.

    January 22, 2012

  • Todd V.

    I changed the meetup a bit. It's not as f2f as I expected, but it might work well with the google+ public hangout; we'll see!

    January 21, 2012

  • Marco N.

    I think we will have to change our schedule as well to make sure we are in sync with the course. Todd will post a message later today.

    "Unfortunately, we've just learned that the launch of the NLP class (and all our other online courses here) has been delayed for reasons beyond our control. We aren't sure how long the delay will be - the range is from a few days to a week or possibly several weeks. We'll let you know a firm date as soon as we possibly can."

    *sigh* What now?
