Open-Tamil v0.8

Last release of Open-Tamil was v0.71 from March 2018. Since then a lot of work has gone into making software with additional features, bug fixes, web interface for Tamilpesu.us

Today, I’m posting the combined efforts of Open-Tamil developers as an update/packaged release v0.8 for Open-Tamil here.

Please try the software in your development environment as:

$ pip install –upgrade open-tamil

and report any problems via email to ezhillang@gmail.com

இந்த நேரத்தில், ஓபன் தமிழ் கணினி தொகுப்பு சிறப்பாகவும் மேம்படுத்தப்பட்டும், பிழைகள் திருத்தப்பட்டும் வருவதற்கு ஒத்துழைப்பும், பங்களிப்பும் அளித்துவரும் நண்பர்கள், பொறியாளர்களுக்கும் மிக்க நன்றிகளை தெறிவித்துக்கொள்கிறேன்.

தொடர்ந்து அடுத்த ஆண்டும் செயல்படுவோமாக. நன்றி. வாழ்க வளமுடன்!

Tamilpesu.us update – Text Summarizer

Tamilpesu.us updated on Aug 8th. This brings all bug fixes of the development in Open-Tamil from March 2018 to present, and new functionality via Tamil text summarizer. This works on text analysis of essay input to split into sentences and words, and forms a correlation matrix to develop a score based off that we pull sentences from text into final summary. Give it a try http://tamilpesu.us/

Text summarizer output of the article from The Hindu Tamil newspaper. Its quite relevant summary in this case, providing an agreeable output.

Unfortunately we are not able to put the Tamil word classifier [using SciKit Learn and Python] online since currently the Python/Django dependency on AWS machine is incompatible; wait for that in future or try it out by yourself.

Thanks to all our contributors, as always to keep this volunteer work going.
