  • Transforming free-form geospatial directions into addresses - SOTA?
    3 projects | | 8 Nov 2022
    To understand what relative distance and direction is indicated from the reference point, I'd look into something like Facebook & Wit.AI's Duckling, and a custom classifier to identify if it's on the reference point ("corner of"), or some distance from ("200 meters southwest"). If you can parse out a distance and direction, then it's all logic to plot the point.

    It also powers the backend of which FB owns. Wit's open-source entity parser, duckling, is written entirely in Haskell.

    Our RandomPicForLater intent will have one slot called reminderTime and will be of type @duckling.time. Duckling is a library that extracts entities from text, and it is one of the tools used in JAICP for this purpose. Entity types in Duckling are called dimensions and there's a number of them built in, among them is Time which suits us perfectly since we need to ask users when they want us to schedule a post for and then parse a text input into a datetime object.

    Good. I set myself the challenge of compiling a Haskell program [1] during the Christmas holidays. It was meant to be a "one mince pie" challenge, but after an hour I discovered the VM I used didn't have enough RAM (during compilation we were approaching 4GB), then I ran out of disk space as stack approaches 5GB & I had other stuff installed. Once a few hours had gone by (this program isn't fast to compile) I had a working program. I now have to figure out if I can distribute just the resulting binary to other servers, or if it needs other software like GHC installing. Having finished the pack of mince pies, that can wait to another day.

    I know when I first started compiling C/C++ software there was a learning curve and it took hours the first time, but I found it easier to get started. With Haskell, the way one version of GHC is installed first and then Stack installs a completely isolated version is confusing; plus the inscrutable error messages (haven't got it to hand, but one means OOM but doesn't say that - it takes a Google to find the GitHub issue to work that out).

    And this is before I try and experiment/decide to learn some Haskell. Apart from the error messages they're not issues with Haskell per se, but they contribute to the experience of it.
