GEO LOCATED NLP & NLG 2016
GEO-LOCATED MEDIA ANALYSIS AND LANGUAGE-GENERATION SOFTWARE
The Software suite
Currently, the library incorporates five tools. “Sample” will scrape and save up to 100 geolocated tweets in batch form. “Real time visualizer” uses “Sample” to create a word frequency distribution chart which can grow and change in real time. “Scan and Respond” scans geo-located tweets and asks the user to verify they are of interest before sending a tweet response. “Suggest_Bot” is an auto-suggest text engine. The user can create poems with bots that suggest either words or phrases based on a pre-defined corpus and/or a geo-located twitter scans of an area. And "Scraper" rips text from websites. Together, these tools allow you to collage the language of the city and respond to it in real time.
“What strange phenomena we find in a great city, all we need do is stroll about with our eyes open. Life swarms with innocent monsters.”
READING AND WRITING AT SCALE
Delta_Ark has built a software library for geo-located scraping, analysis, monitoring and language-generation called Geobot. This library allows an operator to interact directly with the real-time linguistic field of a city. The city is filled with language, constantly shifting and changing; these tools allow you to see it and work with it at scale.
