Minimize your Python Discomfort: A tour of NLP with Spacy, ScalaPy, and Scala 3

In this talk, I will show how you can use ScalaPy to leverage an excellent NLP library like Spacy, minimizing your discomfort of using Python, and enhancing your comfort with Scala 3 for the remaining parts of your application.

About This Talk

In many domains of computer science, state-of-the-art frameworks are written in Python. Natural Language Processing (NLP) is such a domain, and if you want to use cutting-edge approaches, you have to resort to Python libraries. In this talk, I will show how you can use ScalaPy to leverage an excellent NLP library like Spacy, minimizing your discomfort of using Python, and enhancing your comfort with Scala 3 for the remaining parts of your application. I will show everything from configuring your (minimal) environment to interacting with Python, defining facades, and controlling memory usage.
