NLP, SSH, Privacy, and History
- Stanza: A Python Natural Language Processing Toolkit for Many Human Languages — Stanza features a language-agnostic fully neural pipeline for text analysis, including tokenization, multi-word token expansion, lemmatization, part-of-speech and morphological feature tagging, dependency parsing, and named entity recognition. Code and models available for 66 languages.
- Dropbear SSH — Dropbear is a relatively small SSH server and client. It runs on a variety of POSIX-based platforms. Dropbear is open source software, distributed under an MIT-style license. Dropbear is particularly useful for “embedded”-type Linux (or other Unix) systems, such as wireless routers.
- Private Kit — an open source privacy preserving system for logging locations and sharing with researchers on your own terms—e.g., to track contact in coronavirus without losing control.
- Why the EAX Register is Called That — some neat history, showing how deep the roots of backward compatibility are.
