Let’s Get Started

Hello, it has been a while since I updated this blog. I’m a little busy with college stuffs and something like that. And finally, I have came to the last year of my graduate study. After doing some consultations with some professors in my college, I got something as my research focus. Actually, it still at proposal stage, but I hope this will works, because so many people are counting on me about it.

So, I wanna implement MapReduce to optimize processing in automatic part-of-speech tagging (POS tagging). POS tagging is a process of assigning types of words in entire collection of text document. To make the process automatic, we can use some approaches that involves natural language processing techniques. Some approaches involve supervised learning, it means it needs to train the models with tagged corpus before we use the models to tag the real world text document. We can use MapReduce to optimize the learning and the real tagging process.

Since this is my first time dealing with (yeah) MapReduce and natural language processing, I feel a little bit anxious. Even, my anxiety is taking over my excitement already. Hearing this, maybe you’ll say how come I feel anxiety more than excitement. The answer is “I don’t know”, but I hope this will works out and I can finish the research on time. Oh, maybe because there is time variable. Well, if we don’t have time variable then when we will start to do the work?

Well, this is just me rambling around. Thank you for all the readers who have asked some questions, comments, and anything in this blog. I hope we can keep in touch. Wish me luck. I’ll write about my research little by little in this blog. So, be aware.. And let’s get started!!
