“Vierailin ystävän luona.” That is a sentence and it is Finnish. How do I parse that text? In order to get some meaning out of it?
The context of the question is text analytics. So that we could analyze the text, we need to extract some meaning of the words. For example, are there verbs in it and which words are verbs? What kind of sentences are in the text? Are there there a lot of words like “fail, fails, failed”? etc. etc
For machines/software, the sentence “Vierailin ystävän luona.” doesn’t really offer much. That’s why we want to parse it.
As it happens, there is something called Universal Dependencies. And part of Universal Dependencies is a format called CoNLL-U.

GitHub is, as many probably know, home of many open source projects (apparently tens of millions of them) and very, very tiny portion of them projects are somewhat close to me.

Mazes for Programmers is a great book. Definitely one of the greatest books of all time! (about mazes:-)
The book has great code for mazes but unfortunately, for me, the code is in Ruby and I am not yet ready to start coding with Ruby.
But I feared not! Continue reading “Mazes – from Ruby to Python”

I recently encountered Oracle Database 12c and needed to deploy it to IBM PureApplication System (IPAS) as part of a larger solution.
One of the key value propositions of IPAS is automated deployments enabled by patterns. Obviously, in order to realize that value proposition, Oracle needed to be installed automatically to Linux running on IPAS (scripts to do that are here in GitHub repository). Continue reading “Silent Service”
Just after I found out that There is GitHub, I discovered Gist, a place to post code snippets and such. Instead of figuring out which one to use, I use both them 🙂
My Gists are here: https://gist.github.com/samisalkosuo. And I can easily embed them in to blog posts.
