Fall 2009

I have been working on my NLP project for tagging running text with their Parts-of-speech. Also got a chance to dabble with python's nltk to perform a word sense disambiguation using maxent.

My android application is coming along great, if you would like to have a look at the prototype just point your android phone camera at the barcodes above and download my app. It's open source :-)

Another new semester

I am probably the worst blogger in history. My blogs a few and far between and they say nothing that can be useful... anyways, I have started a new semester here at Michigan, lot of good stuff and plenty of bad stuff happening here. Its become really cold in Ann Arbor now, but it reminds me of the weather in Musoorie.

Have been working on sharepoint a lot and also HTML and CSS.

A lot is happening !!!

I have been really busy with my assignments where I am doing text classification of documents using perceptron and naive bayes algorithm - WOW ! thats a mouthful. I met with Paul Tarjan, the creator of search monkey (Yahoo!). I also visited a career fair today, about which I am hopeful that I would land an internship. I am doing the netflix prize competition as my final project for informational retrieval class. I hope we land an internship...
