Recipe Objective

How to get synonyms of a particular word from wordnet.

Wordnet It is nothing but the lexical database or we can say dictionary for English language which is specifically desined for NLP (natuaral language processing). To look up words in wordnet a special kind of a simple interface is present in the NLTK library i.e Synset which is nothing but "sets of cognitive synonyms".

WordNet hastily looks like a thesaurus, in that it bunches words together dependent on their implications. It additionally interlinks the word structures series of letters as well as explicit feelings of words. WordNet marks the semantic relationship among words, though the groupings of words in a thesaurus don't follow any unequivocal example other than significance similitude.

Step 1 - Import the necessary libraries

from nltk.corpus import wordnet

Step 2 - Find the Sysnsets of words

My_sysn = wordnet.synsets("fight")

Here we are going to find synonyms for "Write" word.

Step 3 - Print the result

print("Print an Example of the word:",My_sysn[0].name(), "\n") print("Print just the word:", My_sysn[0].lemmas()[0].name(),"\n") print("Definition of word:", My_sysn[0].definition(),'\n') print("Examples of the word in use in sentences:",My_sysn[0].examples())
Print an Example of the word: battle.n.01 

Print just the word: battle 

Definition of word: a hostile meeting of opposing military forces in the course of a war 

Examples of the word in use in sentences: ['Grant won a decisive victory in the battle of Chickamauga', 'he lost his romantic ideas about war when he got into a real engagement']

Estimating churners before they discontinue using a product or service is extremely important. In this ML project, you will develop a churn prediction model in telecom to predict customers who are most likely subject to churn.

Convolutional RCCn's for extracting the text out of images
CRNNs combine both convolutional and recurrent architectures and is widely used in text detection and optical character recognition (OCR). In this project, we are going to use a CRNN architecture to detect text in sample images. The data we are going to use is TRSynth100k from Kaggle. Given an image containing some text, the goal here is to correctly identify the text using the CRNN architecture. We are going to train the model end-to-end from scratch.

In this human activity recognition project, we use multiclass classification machine learning techniques to analyse fitness dataset from a smartphone tracker.

Time Series LSTM forecasting
In this project, we will use time-series forecasting to predict the values of a sensor using multiple dependent variables. A variety of machine learning models are applied in this task of time series forecasting. We will see a comparison between the LSTM, ARIMA and Regression models. Classical forecasting methods like ARIMA are still popular and powerful but they lack the overall generalizability that memory-based models like LSTM offer. Every model has its own advantages and disadvantages and that will be discussed. The main objective of this article is to lead you through building a working LSTM model and it's different variants such as Vanilla, Stacked, Bidirectional, etc. There will be special focus on customized data preparation for LSTM.
