Hello,

I wonder if the below internship proposition in my laboratory would be fair on the kde or kde-devel mailing list. It is not strictly related to a KDE software but to the release under a free software licence of a large piece of code that could (and I hope will) be very useful to KDE in several aspects (semantic analysis of documents for Nepomuk, automatic extraction of keywords and named entities, etc.).

Waiting for your opinion... Regards,

Gaël


nternship: Release of a multilingual linguistic analysis software under a Free/Libre Open Source Software Licence
(Compulsory internship with internship agreement, Master 1 or 2 level)

CEA LIST
Vision and Content Engineering Laboratory


TOPIC

Context

Since 2002, the LVIC develops the multilingual linguistic analyzer LIMA. It is now a very modular tool able to analyse (tokenization, morphological, syntactic and semantic parsing) texts in languages ​​as diverse as English, French, Arabic, Chinese , Spanish, German or Italian. LIMA currently represents more than 100,000 lines of code (excluding linguistic resources). LIMA is already used in several industrial products, but the CEA LIST has decided to distribute it under Free/Libre Open Source Software License (FLOSS) to facilitate its use, its dissemination and to get faster returns from a broader community of users.
LIMA is coded in standard C++. It uses extensively boost and Qt libraries and is cross-platform (GNU/Linux and MS Windows so far). Its architecture makes it easily extensible and integratable into applications.

Objectives

This release, which is within ASFALDA project (funded by the French National Research Agency) requires further improvements to the software before its distribution on several aspects:
- API documentation;
- User documentation;
- Unit tests;
- Functional tests.

LIMA depends on linguistic resources to operate (dictionaries, parsing rules, ...). Even if the laboratory is the owner of some of them, others are from commercial resources and may not be distributed freely. Another goal of the intern will thus to produce alternative resources from freely available linguistic resources.

The intern will work on these topics in order to make available LIMA on a software forge at the end of the course. The selected candidate will have a good level in C++, an understanding of issues related to software release (testing, documentation ...) and ideally have participated in a free software project.

The internship will take place in the premises of LVIC at Nano-INNOV located in Palaiseau 25 km south of Paris, France.

Course Duration: 4 to 6 months

Training required: Master 1 or 2.

It is development related and as such fits onto kde-devel. But i wonder, you want to apply for an internship in KDE? That is not something KDE has, every work is voluntary based

Yes, but not directly related to KDE.

No, I am the mentor of this internship and I'm searching a candidate to apply on it.

Ah ok. But then still, kde-devel fits quite good. From time to time you also see job offers popping up there which are also not primarily kde focussed.

Thanks for your opinion. I'll post it.
