Week Four

This week I worked on accessing delenn with my computer.  I did not have a lot of time to work this week, but I still managed to access delenn and setup my new computer.  I also had to learn how to use apple’s terminal.  I spent the little time I had left studying the code “Bilateral Multi-Perspective Matching for Natural Language Sentences” by Zhiguo Wang, Wael Hamza, and Radu Florian.  The program takes two sentences as input, and predicts a label for the two input sentences.  It is written using Python 2.7 and TensorFlow 0.12.  I will soon need to train the program using Python.

Next week I will be working on part of the mathematics we need for this project.  I am going to read about PageRank and see if it is a viable option for this research project.
