Subject DKPro-UGD 1.0 release available for download
Date Mon, 03 Aug 2009 21:49:06 GMT
The UKP Lab at Darmstadt University would like to announce its second  

	DKPro for User-Generated Discourse 1.0 (DKPro-UGD).
User-generated discourse from Web 2.0 poses particular challenges to  
natural language processing (NLP) due to its noise and error  
proneness. A data cleansing step preceding the analysis steps in an  
NLP pipeline can reduce the problems. DKPro for User-Generated  
Discourse (DKPro-UGD) provides components for data-cleansing as well  
as dictionaries for artifacts commonly found on user-generated  
discourse on the web, such as emoticons, swearwords and shorthand.

DKPro-UGD is part of the comprehensive Darmstadt Knowledge Processing  
Software Repository project (DKPro). DKPro leverages the flexibility  
of the UIMA framework to facilitate the development and integration of  
new NLP algorithms and easy configuration of NLP experiments.

The DKPro-UGD includes updated versions of some of the components that  
were shipped with DKPro-Core 1.0. Most notable a new and more robust  
TreeTagger wrapper component is included.

The release is freely available for research purposes and can be  
obtained from the DKPro website at
