Ruby and the world of words

A session at RubyConf 2012

Saturday 3rd November, 2012

3:30pm to 4:15pm (MST)

Natural Language Processing is a common names for all the techniques to parse and interpret natural, or human, languages. Whether it's detecting spam, spell checking, the tone or the subject of a text, these techniques are turning out to be immensely useful to handle text data in any kind of volume. Python is known to have a good toolkit, but it turns out Ruby can be used just as much! Using interfaces with various libraries, it's possible to make intelligent scripts in the language we all know and love.
