It is really a pleasure to participate in DC NLP meetup group. And it was so nice to listen to Ari Chanen’s talk on his application of ensembles of Word2Vec, and Mark Lidd’s on the product of DataFission.
Before the talks, the co-organizers gave out sponsored books. I am so lucky to get James Pustejovsky’s and Amber Stubb’s Natual Language Annotation for Machine Learning. It is a book on annotating NLP corpuses, and its process cycle. I never annotate the corpus, but I know it is an important task, however tedious it is.
