This is a course on the foundations of computational linguistics, using #clojure:
From what I can see from a quick glance from the table of content, it contains a lot of stuff, from formal languages over bag-of-word approaches to Markov chains, but is not addressing more high-level aspects of CL, like semantics or discourse.

If you're on Matrix and want to be on the same channel as I am (not that there is a good reason to want to do that) I have a channel on my server: #mastodon:dhsdevelopments.com
Mastodon -> Pleroma
Ah, I keep forgetting, if you want to give Pleroma a try, there's https://p.functional.cafe/ available.
Mastodon -> Pleroma
I know I already bring this up before, but here I ask again: would be an issue for you guys to migrate from Mastodon to Pleroma?
Mastodon is really heavy, has a complex structure (3 different mastodon services, 1 postgresql, 1 redis) and somehow "castrated" by default, forcing #functionalcafe to switch to a fork of it (glitch-soc, which works but of course have a "use at your own risk" disclaim) and sometimes it's a real PITA to update.
Actually, #functionalcafe has 463 users registered, but only about 15-20% of them are active.
Now, an eventual migration to Pleroma will take some times, probably a day but you will keep your toots and your followers.
I'm going to make another poll on another toot for this decision, but I really hope to make the switch. It will means less maintenance, less downtime, less issues thanks to a minor complexity...
Let me know your thoughts.
Ok, #functionalcafe updated to 3.1.5+Glitch, let me know if you have any issue.
Hello fellow users of #functionalcafe. Today I'm going to update our instance with the latest Glitch release (for those who doesn't know we are running a fork of the offical Mastodon).
There will be some downtime, so be patient. Thank you all for the collaboration.
We proudly released a production ready java-script to embed mastodon public timelines on webpages. Example can be found here:
Howto & download can be found here:
Happy toothing & embeding 🙂

For those interested, there is also a Matrix channel for functional.cafe:
There is an online Lisp meeting tomorrow! I will be speaking about integrating multiple condition systems in Common Lisp.
