Link: NLP – The Indian perspective

Just a link to an interesting article by Sunayana on Natural Language Processing as applied to problems in India.

She has an interesting point that because NLP is so underdeveloped in India, even undergraduate-level projects may be contributing to the cutting edge of research.

This is similar to what was mentioned in the podcast about Somali speech synthesis for clinicans that I pointed out a while ago.

(Update for July 18: Sparked by my link, there is now a link-rich counter argument at ResNotebook)
