Download source code

Fork to your_repo

$ git clone

Anaconda virtual environment

We use Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and miniconda3version of Anaconda. Please check Anaconda guides

Create virtual environment

$ cd ~/language-learning
$ conda env create

Default ull environment created from environment.yml file includes necessary packages, matplotlib and Jupyter notebook.
You can add packages and update environment at your own risk.

Update environment:

Update with new environment.yml file pulled from Github repository recommended:

$ cd ~/language-learning
$ git pull
$ conda env update -n ull --prune

The --prune key would force remove packages not specified in the .yml file. If you have added come packages to the environment, you would rather let them prune and add after the update. Otherwise vwrsion conflicts might occur.
You might need to reinstall Grammar Tester after environment update.

Command Line Scripts (including pipeline)


From language-learning directory run:

$ source activate ull
$ pip install .

If for some reason you are not using virtual environment or using Python 2.x along with Python 3.x make sure you run pip3 instead:

$ pip3 install .

opencog-ull package will be installed to your virtual environment. Command line scripts from src/cli-scripts are copied to /bin subdirectory in your virtual environment.

To uninstall the package type:

$ pip uninstall opencog-ull

Running pipeline

To be able to run pipeline make sure you properly installed command line scripts following the instructions in previous section. To run pipeline you simply neen to type the following command:

$ ull-cli -C <config-file.json>

Read more on pipeline configuration and execution.

Running command line scripts

Command line scripts (which are located in src/cli-scripts) can be run from any location after proper installation. In activated virtual environment type the name of the script you need to run. Read more on CLI scripts

Calling Grammar Tester library functions from within your code

If you are going to use grammar tester from within your own code see src/samples for use cases.

Jupyter notebooks

Running on a local machine (with opencog-ull istalled)

$ cd ~/language-learning
$ source activate ull
$ jupyter notebook

Check sample notebooks in /notebooks directory.

Runing Jupyter notebooks on a server


$ ssh -L 8000:localhost:8888 login@server.ip.address  
$ screen  
sh-4.3$ cd language-learning  
sh-4.3$ source activate ull  
(ull) sh-4.3$ jupyter notebook --no-browser --port=8888
[...NotebookApp] The Jupyter Notebook is running at:
[...NotebookApp] http://localhost:8888/?token=(copy_this_token)  

Browser: http://localhost:8000/?token=(token_copied_in_the_terminal)

Grammar Learner:

Source code -- /src/grammar_learner, key parameters described in README.
Tutorial v.0.1: video, notebook, static html copy of the notebook

Running "mini-pipeline": Grammar Learner & Tester

$ cd ~/language-learning/pipeline
$ python config.json
