Heavy Metal and Natural Language Processing

By Iain

Note 1
In this post I refer to lyrics of certain bands as being “Metal”. I know some people have strong feelings about how genres are defined, and would probably disagree with me about some of the bands I call metal in this post. I call these band “Metal” here for the sake of brevity only, and I apologise in advance.
Natural language is ubiquitous. It is all around us, and the rate at which it is produced in written, stored form is only increasing. It is also quite unlike any sort of data I have worked with before.
Natural language is made up of sequences of discrete characters arranged into hierarchical groupings: words, sentences and documents, each with both syntactic structure and semantic meaning.
Not only is the space of possible strings huge, but the interpretation of a small sections of a document can take on vastly different meanings

Google adds a native Cast option to Chrome on the desktop

If you’ve been using a browser extension to add a casting option to Chrome, you could think about uninstalling it. Google is currently rolling out an update to the desktop version of its web browser. The feature is making its way to Chrome 51 and can be accessed by right clicking either an open tab or the browser’s hamburger menu. Should you ditch the extension, though? It really depends on your needs… While the change does little to change the way casting content to Chromecast devices actually works, it does make things a little easier.

An Alternative

There are, however, also some other terminal multiplexers besides GNU

The History of screen And tmux
