Calling Go Functions from Lisp – Part 2

In my earlier article Calling Go Functions from Lisp, I explained the steps for making calls to Go functions from another language, specifically LispWorks Lisp. Today, I want to give a slightly more  interesting example showing the use of Go channels through exported functions. Go is widely admired for its native support for concurrency via Goroutines. […]

Calling Lisp Functions from Go Language

In the previous post, we saw how to invoke a Go function from Lisp. In today’s post, I would like to explain how to go in the other direction, namely, how to call Lisp functins from Go. There are two ways to do this. The first approach is to load the Lisp DLL (like any […]

Calling Go Functions from Lisp

For the past few weeks I was travelling in the USA and had the pleasure of meeting several friends, some of whom are senior developers and architects. It was interesting to learn that many of them were either using Go language in their daily work, or were passionately endorsing the language! Due to lack of […]

Question Answering Using Dependency Trees

A few weeks ago I had written about my brief experiment with Mathematica’s new feature, which provides answers to questions based on given text.

Natural Language Generation

I had written a series of posts on my iLangGen framework last year. It aims to provide a flexible and expressive approach for building natural language generation systems. In today’s post, I would like to describe a concrete example of how iLangGen can be used for generating natural language text from structured data, aided by […]

About 10 days ago, I received an update for Mathematica. The latest version is 11.3.0. As usual, I looked through the list of new features in this release. There are several new features, but one of them attracted my attention immediately: There is a new function FindTextualAnswer that, given a piece of text and a question, can […]

Kangaroo Words

Written by on March 11, 2018 in LISP, Natural Language Processing, Programming with 0 Comments

According to Wikipedia, “A kangaroo word is a word that contains letters of another word, in order, with the same meaning. For example: the word ‘masculine’ contains the word ‘male’, which is a synonym of the first word; similarly, the word ‘observe’ contains its synonym ‘see’.” Interesting idea. The key point to note is that […]

I had earlier briefly talked about the Ilexicon project that I have been working on for some time now. The goal is to build an intelligent dictionary that will come in handy while implementing NLP applications such as recognizers and generators. In today’s post, I want to demonstrate some cool features available in iLexicon. At present iLexicon […]
