Github Excerpts

Lexical Decision in TensorFlow

This project is an attempt to replicate a paper that used convolutional neural networks to replicate the performance of baboons in a lexical decision task. This was used as an example during a "Deep Learning 101" presentation. The talk introduced deep learning in TensorFlow to professors and graduate students in the Neurobiology of Language program at the University of Connecticut.


Kanji Stroke Counter

These models are use to determine the number of strokes in Japanese kanji. The primary model consists of a convolutional neural network, but a second model uses only a feedforward network.


Scraping Twitter for Language Learners

This purpose of this project was to determine interest in learning languages by scraping Twitter and generating visualizations with regards to Chinese, English, and Japanese. This project could be improved by increasing the amount of data collected to include a larger time period, as overlapping topics are likely influenced by what is trending.

Dplyr and GGPlot2 Tutorials

This is currently a two-part series on the basics of data cleaning and visualization in R. It was prepared and presented for graduate students at the University of Connecticut Department of Psychology. Tutorial One explains some of the functions available in dplyr for cleaning data. Tutorial Two goes through some of the plotting available in ggplot2. Bad jokes come free of charge.


Generating Haiku with Recurrent Neural Networks

This model uses a recurrent neural network to generate haiku. Data included are the haiku of Matsuo Basho and Kobayashi Issa. Both were members of the "Great Four" haiku masters in Japan.
