Similarity Computation using Semantic Networks

A Natural Language Engineering (NLE) implementation of similarity computation using semantic networks (Iosif and Potamianos, 2012).


This project attempts to implement the unsupervised "similarity computation using semantic networks" methodology as described in [1]. This is part of the District Data Research Labs Spring 2015 group projects on Semantic Network Extraction.
