Theory Jar

September 01, 2017

The aim of Theory Jar was to translate scientific jargon into lay language. I was responsible for scraping text to build a corpora, and processed this using Python's Natural Language Toolkit (NLTK). With this accomplished, a mySQL database was connected to a web application that could accept any text, returning a simplified version complete with definitions.
