Language Processing for Art
Language Processing for Art: Reading, Writing, Listening, Speaking.
This course explores the relationship between text and image, interactivity, and the database/archive from the perspective of contemporary language processing techologies.
We will survey recent developments from the fields of natural language processing (NLP) and computational linguistics (CL) as well as relevant artistic upper-level course exploring natural language processing (NLP) and computational linguistics (CL) as applied to art. It explores questions of the relationship between text and image, interactivity, and the database/archive from the perspective of contemporary language processing technologies. This is an upper-level course, and requires previous programming experience.
Python Natural Language Tool Kit (http://nltk.org)
- NLTK was originally created in 2001 as part of a computational linguistics course in the Department of Computer and Information Science at the University of Pennsylvania. Since then it has been developed and expanded with the help of dozens of contributors. It has now been adopted in courses in dozens of universities, and serves as the basis of many research projects. See Table I.2 for a list of the most important NLTK modules.
