  • Constraints: Interpreting Line Drawings
    • Successful research:
      • Finds a problem
      • Finds a method that solves the problem
      • Using some principal (That can be generalized)
  • Gave Aaron M. A subversion account and sent him a description of the structure of the project
  • Back to dictionary creation
    • Wire up Extract into Dictionary
      • I think I’m going to do most of this on the server. If I do a select text from tn_view_network_items where network = X, then I can run that text that is already in the DB through the term extractor, which should be the fastest thing I can do.
      • The next fastest thing would be to pull the text from the url (if it exists) and add that to the text pull.
      • Added a getTextFromNetwork() method to NetworkDbObject.
      • The html was getting extracted badly, so I had to add a call to alchemy to return the cleaned text. TODO: in the future add a ‘clean_text’ column to tn_items so this is done on ingestion. I also added
      • Added all the pieces to the rssPull.php file and tested. And integrated with the client. Looks like it takes about 8 seconds to go through my resume, so some offline processing will probably be needed for ACM papers, for example.
    • Wire up Attach Dictionary to Network
      • The current setup is set so that a new item that is read in will associate with the current network dictionary. Need to add a way to have the items that are already in the network to check themselves against the new dictionary.
      • Added class AlchemyDictReflect that will place keywords in the DB. Still need to debug. And don’t forget that the controller will have to reload the network after all thechanges are made.
