Date Mon, 15 May 2017 18:40:04 GMT


Kenneth Knowles reassigned BEAM-1439:

    Assignee:     (was: Kenneth Knowles)

> Beam Example(s) exploring public document datasets
> --------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: BEAM-1439
>                 URL:
>             Project: Beam
>          Issue Type: Wish
>          Components: examples-java
>            Reporter: Kenneth Knowles
>            Priority: Minor
>              Labels: gsoc2017, java, mentor, python
> In Beam, we have examples illustrating counting the occurrences of words and performing
a basic TF-IDF analysis on the works of Shakespeare (or whatever you point it at). It would
be even cooler to do these analyses, and more, on a much larger data set that is really the
subject of current investigations.
> In chatting with professors at the University of Washington, I've learned that scholars
of many fields would really like to explore new and highly customized ways of processing the
growing body of publicly-available scholarly documents, such as PubMed Central. Queries like
"show me documents where chemical compounds X and Y were both used in the 'method' section"
> So I propose a Google Summer of Code project wherein a student writes some large-scale
Beam pipelines to perform analyses such as term frequency, bigram frequency, etc.
> Skills required:
>  - Java or Python
>  - (nice to have) Working through the Beam getting started materials
