Using natural language processing of text to enable easy, intuitive mobile search through Thumbprint.
We tried this out by allowing people to search for activities in a programme of half term and summer events for children and families in their neighbourhood, an area of Huddersfield where there are higher than average levels of disadvantage.
A collaboration with researchers at the University of Edinburgh and University of Huddersfield.
The experience gained from the local events search initiative led on to sponsoring a PHD in natural language processing.
I've got an ongoing interest in natural language processing and am hoping to get back to it soon.
