Language Technology Platform (LTP), 2013.6 - presentLTP is a software package that provides a Chinese natural language processing pipeline along with web service API.
- one of the developers and the major maintainer of LTP.
- developed 4 modules including Chinese word segmentation, POSTagging, NER and Dependency parsing in a perceptron algorithm framework.
- developed the RESTful API and contributed to the development of website.
Zpar Project, 2013.10 - presentZPar is statistical multi-language parser. ZPar provides integrated systems that perform word segmentation, part-of-speech tagging, dependency parsing or phrase structure parsing.
- developed transition based non-projective dependency parser.
- developed bug fixes.
