Ulysses, Joyce and Stanford CoreNLP

Introduction to memory and time usage

From the webpage:

People not infrequently complain that Stanford CoreNLP is slow or takes a ton of memory. In some configurations this is true. In other configurations, this is not true. This section tries to help you understand what you can or can’t do about speed and memory usage. The advice applies regardless of whether you are running CoreNLP from the command-line, from the Java API, from the web service, or from other languages. We show command-line examples here, but the principles are true of all ways of invoking CoreNLP. You will just need to pass in the appropriate properties in different ways. For these examples we will work with chapter 13 of Ulysses by James Joyce. You can download it if you want to follow along.

You have to appreciate the use of a non-trivial text for advice on speed and memory usage of CoreNLP.

How does your text stack up against Chapter 13 of Ulysses?

I’m supposed to be reading Ulysses long distance with a friend. I’m afraid we have both fallen behind. Perhaps this will encourage me to have another go at it.

What favorite or “should read” text would you use to practice with CoreNLP?
