nate (Network Analysis + Text)
Research at the intersection of social network analysis and applied natural language processing.
nate is a Python package designed and developed by NETLAB at the University of Waterloo. It is designed to facilitate research at the intersection of social network analysis / network science and applied natural language processing. It scales efficiently for large and complex datasets.
nate offers functionality for seamlessly connecting state-of-the-art machine learning models used in natural language processing workflows using
spacy with network analysis workflows using packages such as
igraph for Python, and
nate has carefully-designed data structures that connect these two types of research workflows, and offers a set of tools for quickly producing descriptive reports and visualizations.
In the very near future, you will be able to install the most recent stable version of
nate with pip.
pip install nate
If you want access to the most recent development version of
nalanna, you can install it from the source code in this repository.
git clone https://github.com/UWNETLAB/nate.git && cd nate && pip install .
