Data Skeptic podcast

Check out Data Skeptic’s newest podcast on Natural Language Processing (NLP):

The podcast covers the uses of NLP, from topic modeling and translation to speech recognition. Kyle Polich and Linh Da Tran address some of the criticism, too. Fred Jelinek’s “Every time I fire a linguist…” makes a paleo appearance while discussing what appears to be a less-than-friendly debate among computer science folks and linguists.

I liked in particular the segment where Lucy Park talks about the development of KoNLPy, a Python library for text processing in Korean.
