New Arabic NLP findings – An Arabic speech corpus and an Arabic Root Finder neural net

Published a new blog post on Arabic.Computer about two projects I found on the Internet that are useful for Arabic NLP initiatives. The first one is Arabic Speech Corpus in a Damascian accent provided by Nawar Halabi and is offered under a non-commercial license. The other one is Arabic Root Finder, a useful Keras/Scikit-Learn neural network for finding Arabic word roots and is offered by Tyler Boyd under a GPL-3 license.

Links and more information are available at the blog post.

Arabic.Computer

I started a new site http://arabic.computer to share and store any material that is related to the Arabic language and technology. For the time being, I will just post material that I encounter whenever I happen to be reading or researching online. Later on, I will expand more on it and eventually hope to drive our Arab community of engineers, researchers, and technologists to share any Arabic-related work.
