As I woke up in the morning mustering the courage to answer all “Why are we not celebrating the men’s day with all this grandeur” messages, to my surprise there was none instead I was welcomed with “You are doing great, keep going” messages. Wow! that’s different.
Well, people have finally understood the need and significance of the day. No more debating and spending energy on people who are determined not to agree with any of the feminist thought anyway.
The day had more surprises for me. And Amazon decided to add colour to my women’s day plans by the…
Hey, budding c++ coders out there! On your way to becoming a fleshed out developer? I presume you have installed a code editor of your choice, installed compilers, debuggers and all the necessary libraries. But you are missing one mostly overlooked component by beginners, the testing tool.
We will see :
Google Test is a unit testing library for the C++ programming language, based on the xUnit architecture.
Or simply put, it makes your C++ testing easy and efficient. …
There are many NLP tasks like text summarization, question-answering, sentence prediction to name a few. One method to get these tasks done is using a pre-trained model. Instead of training a model from scratch for NLP tasks using millions of annotated texts each time, a general language representation is created by training a model on a huge amount of data. This is called a pre-trained model. This pre-trained model is then fine-tuned for each NLP tasks according to need.
Let’s just peek into the pre-BERT world…
For creating models, we need words to be represented in a form understood by…
Whenever we hear about a social issue for the first time (that feeling of whether we were living under a rock ) we wish we knew all the sides of the story by getting all the new articles based on it.
A few lines of code will do the trick. There is a very interesting python package called newspaper which can be used to extract online news articles. You can install newspaper by
pip install newspaper3k
Now let’s import all the necessary libraries.
from newspaper import Article
There can be many online news sources…
WordCloud is a visualization of the frequency of words in a given text. Certain words appear bigger than the other when their frequency of occurrence is higher. WordClouds may not be an appropriate visualization method in context to the importance of words in a given text.
Here, let’s see how to create WordCloud from data that is scraped from a website using Python.
Step 1 is Scraping and step 2 is creating WordCloud.
To those who wonder how I got into GHCI, here are my tries to be the part of the Asia’s largest women conference in Technology and how I finally made it.
Some words are destined to inspire you. Sometimes they are the golden words that inadvertently become true.
“You are the only one that I have hope to become a GHCI scholar”. These words by my dearest friend Enfa Rose George and co-founder of Pehia foundation , an NGO aimed at empowering gender minorities which I am part of, couldn’t be truer.
The week prior to exams… “THE WEEK ” loaded with assignments, project works, presentations and what not. The week in which you rush through your syllabus.
I began to realize that now my opinions and suggestions are getting space. People began to value my words even though I was saying exactly the same thing before. So one major takeaway is that “Tags do matter”. Just like being an IITian gives you an upper hand in opportunities in India, I began to realize that being a scholar rendered voice to my thoughts.
I spent some time tweaking my Wordpress site, playing with…
This week was filled with tension and hustle. I’m gonna straight forward tell you the two things I learned this week :
On Saturday I had my second call with my mentor Lavanya. Both of us were almost in the same situation of confusion and panic. She has to leave for US and me to Singapore for our respective scholarships and therefore had a pile of assignments to complete in addition to exams. We agreed to have a quick call just to know what had happened in the week before and to discuss more on Outreachy scholarship.
Last week when we had our first call, she said to me “I came to know that you got shortlisted for WTM interview and I’m expecting…
The week had gone like a wind. This week I was determined to completely focus on my android project, nothing else. And in that way, I feel like more contented and satisfied as I had my head immersed in node.js, android studio, Mongo DB and of course Java.
I think it’s long that I had done anything to improve my technical skills. And thus, sleeves up, more focus. And like Paulo Coelho said, “ When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it”. I received a totally unexpected mail stating I was selected to the…
