Natural Language Processing of Greek Language
Google Summer of Code project 2018
Bearing in mind the amount of text data that is transfered everyday in the web, Natural Language Processing becomes a necessity if we want the best insights into how people think. The good news is that spaCy is a modern pythonic platform that provides that provides state-of-the-art tools for language processing. The bad news is Greek language is not on spaCy. I want to bridge the gap between what we want and what we have, so I decided to add Greek language to spaCy platform. Neural networks that do Part of Speech Tagging, Dependency Analysis, Named Entities Extraction and more.
Smart home project
Ever wondered how future homes could me? I did. With my team, we created a smart-home lego prototype in which we used Computer Vision and Machine Learning to personalize the experience of the home owner. Recognizing the guests and playing music that they like, lights adjustment based on user preferences, locking and unlocking doors based on priviledges that people in the house have, are some of the current capabilities of the lego house.
