Accepted talk: Duco Dokter - NLTK: natural language processing with Python

Another trick up Python's sleeve is natural language processing. Duco Dokter is going to show us why this is exciting (it is!). Summary of this interesting presentation:

"The Natural Language ToolKit provides a collection of modules for processing natural languages. This enables you, for instance, split text into sentences, tag words in texts regarding the syntactic role in the sentence or phrase, derive word stem, etc. In the real world, as opposed to the scientific world, the toolkit can be used as well, for example to implement a system for implementing automagical links in online documents. This is the example case in the presentation at hand, but the overall aim is to provide some insight into practical use of the NLTK"
