Pattern.py + NodeBox By Tom de Smedt
Tom De Smedt ( http://organisms.be/ ) come from belgium to present us his projects “pattern.py” and “NodeBox” at Fabelier, Wed. May 11th, 6pm.
Pattern.py ( http://www.clips.ua.ac.be/pages/pattern ) is a web mining module for the Python programming language.
It bundles tools for data retrieval (Google + Twitter + Wikipedia API, web spider, HTML DOM parser), text analysis (rule-based shallow parser, WordNet interface, syntactical + semantical n-gram search algorithm, tf-idf + cosine similarity + LSA metrics) and data visualization (graph networks).
The module is bundled with 30+ example scripts.
NodeBox ( http://www.cityinabottle.org/nodebox/ ) for OpenGL is a free, cross-platform library for generating 2D animations with Python programming code. It is built on Pyglet and adopts the drawing API from NodeBox for Mac OS X (http://nodebox.net). It has built-in support for paths, layers, motion tweening, hardware-accelerated image effects, simple physics and interactivity.
Please prepare for the workshop by installing Python and the necessary complements *before* the workshop.
