Is Bidirectional Sentence Parsing the Future of Natural Language Processing?

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Computer Science

Bharathi Sridhar Abstract Traditionally, text is analysed unidirectionally: from left to right. But bidirectional parsing is quickly becoming more prevalent in Natural Language Processing (NLP) and deep learning. Deep learning methods often require large amounts of data to extract patterns but in many NLP tasks, labelled data is scarce, so usually, a model is pre-trained […]

Nishka Srivastava Anti-counterfeiting technology inspired by the wings of a butterfly. A robotic arm inspired by an elephant’s trunk. Fascinating ideas like these are everyday at The Biomimicry Institute – an organisation dedicated to promoting biomimicry, or design that emulates nature to create sustainable and effective solutions to our problems. Recently the Institute held their […]

Quantum Tunneling

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Physics

Lavanya Arora The quantum world hosts a lot of staggering and interesting phenomena. One of these is quantum tunneling. It is a process in which a particle with less energy penetrates through a barrier with higher energy. The most common example scientists give to explain this is that of a ball and a hill. Consider […]

Archaeology and language – writing systems in the archaeological record

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Archaeology, Linguistics

Weina Jin Introduction History would not exist without writing. According to Gerd Carling, the amount of knowledge passed down from a society is higher if you have written sources about that culture, compared to non-written sources. She says this is down to the “methodology of linguistics. It’s easier to get certain knowledge about things in […]
