Brian Ray
Recorded: Jan. 9, 2014Language: English

Brian will talk about his experiences using Python and NLTK to run language comparisons to generate lexical difference graphs like the one mentioned in the "Lexical Distance Among the Languages of Europe" article.

The focus will be on the NLTK and how its internals work to process a language. This talk will be his best one ever.
