I'll be speaking about NLP at RailsConf. There will be sentence diagramming!

Syntax Isn't Everything: NLP for Rubyists Natural Language Processing is an interesting field of computing. The way humans use language is nuanced and deeply context sensitive. For example, the word work can be both a noun and a verb. This talk will give an introduction to the field of NLP using Ruby. There will be demonstrations of how computers fail and succeed at human language. You'll leave the presentation with an understanding of both the challenges and the possibilities of NLP and some tools for getting started with it. Aja Hammerly Aja lives in Seattle where she is a Developer Advocate at Google and a member of the Seattle Ruby Brigade. Her favorite languages are Ruby and Prolog. She also loves working with large piles of data. In her free time she enjoys skiing, cooking, knitting, and long coding sessions on the beach.
