Closure Compiler  |  Google Developers
What are the benefits of using Closure Compiler?

Efficiency. The Closure Compiler reduces the size of your JavaScript files and makes them more efficient, helping your application to load faster and reducing your bandwidth needs.
Code checking. The Closure Compiler provides warnings for illegal JavaScript and warnings for potentially dangerous operations, helping you to produce JavaScript that is less buggy and easier to maintain.

"Natural" is a general natural language facility for nodejs. Tokenizing, stemming, classification, phonetics, tf-idf, WordNet, string similarity, and some inflections are currently supported.

It's still in the early stages, so we're very interested in bug reports, contributions and the like.

Note that many algorithms from Rob Ellis's node-nltools are being merged into this project and will be maintained from here onward.

At the moment, most of the algorithms are English-specific, but in the long-term, some diversity will be in order. Thanks to Polyakov Vladimir, Russian stemming has been added!, Thanks to David Przybilla, Spanish stemming has been added!.

Aside from this README, the only documentation is this DZone article and here on my blog, which is a bit older.

Machine Learning in Javascript: Introduction | Burak Kanber's BlogBurak Kanber's Blog
I love machine learning algorithms. I’ve taught classes and seminars and given talks on ML. The subject is fascinating to me, but like all skills fascination simply isn’t enough. To get good at something, you need to practice!

I also happen to be a PHP and JavaScript developer. I’ve taught classes on both of these as well — but like any decent software engineer I have experience with Ruby, Python, Perl, and C. I just prefer PHP and JS. (Before you flame PHP, I’ll just say that while it has its problems, I like it because it gets stuff done.)

Make a Logo
Last year I needed a logo for a website I was making. It was a simple site and I wanted a simple, modern logo. I tried to make a logo in Photoshop. After wasting two days, I ended up with a logo my wife said looked stupid.

I searched for a professional logo designer. Professional designers are expensive! I didn't have a few thousand bucks to spend on a logo for a little side project.

I gave up on professional designers and I tried a site where people competed in a contest to make my logo. None of the logos were great and the "designers" didn't listen to my feedback and continued to churn out logos that looked like cheap clip art. It cost me $295 and I ended up with a logo I didn't like and didn't use. $295 down the drain! (Don't tell my wife.)
