Hi All!

Which is the best software to analyse an english text, and build up a concept-network based on the content of the text?

Cheers,
Az˙rlovag

Try Java.
Regular expression is supported by Java NIO.
I have experimented with Java, it works well.

 Natural Language Processing

Regular expressions are implemented in almost any programming language. I would agree to use even Python, in order to not to use Java, but when you need speed then there still is nothing better than C.

Ok, I have experience with java, perl, and shell-scripting. :)

But, my question was: "which software...". My question was not: "which programming language...".

So, I am looking for some software, that can perform this task. I mean, I am searching for a software-product, that is already written and tested. I want to use such a software. I don't want to write a new software for this purpose. (I mean, not yet... :) )

What you're asking for is a basically the holy grail of AI projects. A program that can robustly parse, interpret, and categorize natural language does not yet exist. Your question was misinterpreted because they assumed that people on this forum understand this.

I don't know if there are commercially available products that attempt what you're asking, but I doubt they do it very well.

I'm working on precisely this challenge (categorizing content via erudition) with a program I'm building. But it's a long term project and riddled with difficulty.

Hi hunt,

Yes, it is a part of the holy grail of AI. I mean, from birds-eye view, it would be a feature of the strong AI. And yes, at the time of opening this topic, I have known exaclty what I am asking /asking for. Its nice to meet someone here, who knows, what I am talking about.

In 5 years, I will write a PhD about chat-bots. But some of us will know, that it is not about chat-bots, but about the system-processes of an artificial think-space (I call such things as "think-bots"). Based on my PhD, it will be possible to write such a software, that can interpret e.g. my questions better than many-many human beings. Related to this project, I still have more questions than answers, but I keep working on them. I know, that mankind needs such a software, so I will never give it up.

You will be one of those, who will read and understand my results, I suppose. Or, I will read and understand yours. :)

Thank you for your post. It is really good to know, that you are out there, because I feel, that it motivates me. Keep working on your project and have a nice day!

Bye,
Az˙rlovag

Az˙rlovag,

Well, you've certainly chosen a wild and unwieldy beast of a thesis project. Is your PhD focused more on theoretical aspects of NLP or on the implementation of your ideas in software? What group are you working with?

I look forward to hearing more about your work as it develops. And be sure to post when you publish something!
