Extracting noun phrases with contextual relevance in .NET using OpenNLP | randonom

A few months ago I was working on a project that had a word cloud-like feature. A word cloud is an interesting way to visually represent a popular theme or topic. I had a dataset of user reviews from another project that we wanted to parse and use. This began my first exposure to Natural Language Processing NLP and other advanced text analytics tools.

Introducing Amazon Silk

September 28, 2011 by The Amazon Silk Team 429 Comments

Today in New York, Amazon introduced Silk, an all-new web browser powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS) and available exclusively on the just announced Kindle Fire.  You might be asking, “A browser?  Do we really need another one?”  As you’ll see in the video below, Silk isn’t just another browser.  We sought from the start to tap into the power and capabilities of the AWS infrastructure to overcome the limitations of typical mobile browsers.  Instead of a device-siloed software application, Amazon Silk deploys a split-architecture.  All of the browser subsystems are present on your Kindle Fire as well as on the AWS cloud computing platform.  Each time you load a web page, Silk makes a dynamic decision about which of these subsystems will run locally and which will execute remotely.  In short, Amazon Silk extends the boundaries of the browser, coupling the capabilities and interactivity of your local device with the massive computing power, memory, and network connectivity of our cloud.

We’ll have a lot more to say about Amazon Silk in the coming weeks and months, so please check back with us often.  You can also follow us on Twitter at @AmazonSilk.  Finally, if you’re interested in learning more about career opportunities on the Amazon Silk team, please visit our jobs page.

Your Own Cloud of Ebooks with Calibre + Calibre OPDS + Dropbox

The big movement seems toward ebooks in the cloud but if you go with Google or Kindle or some other service, you are stuck with their rules of access. You can create your own cloud, however, and control your own library. Further, you can set up your cloud for free using open source programs and a free account at dropbox.

This cloud set up allows you to have access, either by webbrowser or by iPhone/iTouch, to your entire ebook catalog from anywhere you can get internet connection, whether by wifi or cellular access.  The catalog generated is incredibly feature rich.  You can browse your catalog by series, tags, author, title, and most recent additions. You can look up a book on Goodreads or check out the wikipage for an author.
