自然语言处理工具包spaCy介绍

Deep Learning Specialization on Coursera

spaCy 是一个Python自然语言处理工具包,诞生于2014年年中,号称“Industrial-Strength Natural Language Processing in Python”,是具有工业级强度的Python NLP工具包。spaCy里大量使用了 Cython 来提高相关模块的性能,这个区别于学术性质更浓的Python NLTK,因此具有了业界应用的实际价值。

安装和编译 spaCy 比较方便,在ubuntu环境下,直接用pip安装即可:

sudo apt-get install build-essential python-dev git
sudo pip install -U spacy

不过安装完毕之后,需要下载相关的模型数据,以英文模型数据为例,可以用"all"参数下载所有的数据:

sudo python -m spacy.en.download all

或者可以分别下载相关的模型和用glove训练好的词向量数据:


# 这个过程下载英文tokenizer,词性标注,句法分析,命名实体识别相关的模型
python -m spacy.en.download parser

# 这个过程下载glove训练好的词向量数据
python -m spacy.en.download glove

下载好的数据放在spacy安装目录下的data里,以我的ubuntu为例:

textminer@textminer:/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/spacy/data$ du -sh *
776M en-1.1.0
774M en_glove_cc_300_1m_vectors-1.0.0

进入到英文数据模型下:

textminer@textminer:/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/spacy/data/en-1.1.0$ du -sh *
424M deps
8.0K meta.json
35M ner
12M pos
84K tokenizer
300M vocab
6.3M wordnet

可以用如下命令检查模型数据是否安装成功:


textminer@textminer:~$ python -c "import spacy; spacy.load('en'); print('OK')"
OK

也可以用pytest进行测试:


# 首先找到spacy的安装路径:
python -c "import os; import spacy; print(os.path.dirname(spacy.__file__))"
/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/spacy

# 再安装pytest:
sudo python -m pip install -U pytest

# 最后进行测试:
python -m pytest /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/spacy --vectors --model --slow

现在可以快速测试一下spaCy的相关功能,我们以英文数据为例,spaCy目前主要支持英文和德文,对其他语言的支持正在陆续加入:

# 加载英文模型数据,稍许等待
In [2]: nlp = spacy.load('en')

Word tokenize功能,spaCy 1.2版本加了中文tokenize接口,基于Jieba中文分词:

In [3]: test_doc = nlp(u"it's word tokenize test for spacy")

In [4]: print(test_doc)
it's word tokenize test for spacy

In [5]: for token in test_doc:
print(token)

基于词向量计算两个单词的相似度:


In [15]: test_doc = nlp(u"Apples and oranges are similar. Boots and hippos aren't.")

In [16]: apples = test_doc[0]

In [17]: print(apples)
Apples

In [18]: oranges = test_doc[2]

In [19]: print(oranges)
oranges

In [20]: boots = test_doc[6]

In [21]: print(boots)
Boots

In [22]: hippos = test_doc[8]

In [23]: print(hippos)
hippos

In [24]: apples.similarity(oranges)
Out[24]: 0.77809414836023805

In [25]: boots.similarity(hippos)
Out[25]: 0.038474555379008429

当然,spaCy还包括句法分析的相关功能等。另外值得关注的是 spaCy 从1.0版本起,加入了对深度学习工具的支持,例如 Tensorflow 和 Keras 等,这方面具体可以参考官方文档给出的一个对情感分析(Sentiment Analysis)模型进行分析的例子:Hooking a deep learning model into spaCy.

Python自然语言处理实践: 在NLTK中使用斯坦福中文分词器

Deep Learning Specialization on Coursera

斯坦福大学自然语言处理组是世界知名的NLP研究小组,他们提供了一系列开源的Java文本分析工具,包括分词器(Word Segmenter),词性标注工具(Part-Of-Speech Tagger),命名实体识别工具(Named Entity Recognizer),句法分析器(Parser)等,可喜的事,他们还为这些工具训练了相应的中文模型,支持中文文本处理。在使用NLTK的过程中,发现当前版本的NLTK已经提供了相应的斯坦福文本处理工具接口,包括词性标注,命名实体识别和句法分析器的接口,不过可惜的是,没有提供分词器的接口。在google无果和阅读了相应的代码后,我决定照猫画虎为NLTK写一个斯坦福中文分词器接口,这样可以方便的在Python中调用斯坦福文本处理工具。

首先需要做一些准备工作,第一步当然是安装NLTK,这个可以参考我们在gensim的相关文章中的介绍《如何计算两个文档的相似度》,不过这里建议check github上最新的NLTK源代码并用“python setup.py install”的方式安装这个版本:https://github.com/nltk/nltk。这个版本新增了对于斯坦福句法分析器的接口,一些老的版本并没有,这个之后我们也许还会用来介绍。而我们也是在这个版本中添加的斯坦福分词器接口,其他版本也许会存在一些小问题。其次是安装Java运行环境,以Ubuntu 12.04为例,安装Java运行环境仅需要两步:

sudo apt-get install default-jre
sudo apt-get install default-jdk

最后,当然是最重要的,你需要下载斯坦福分词器的相应文件,包括源代码,模型文件,词典文件等。注意斯坦福分词器并不仅仅支持中文分词,还支持阿拉伯语的分词,需要下载的zip打包文件是这个: Download Stanford Word Segmenter version 2014-08-27,下载后解压。

准备工作就绪后,我们首先考虑的是在nltk源代码里的什么地方来添加这个接口文件。在nltk源代码包下,斯坦福词性标注器和命名实体识别工具的接口文件是这个:nltk/tag/stanford.py ,而句法分析器的接口文件是这个:nltk/parse/stanford.py , 虽然在nltk/tokenize/目录下有一个stanford.py文件,但是仅仅提供了一个针对英文的tokenizer工具PTBTokenizer的接口,没有针对斯坦福分词器的接口,于是我决定在nltk/tokenize下添加一个stanford_segmenter.py文件,作为nltk斯坦福中文分词器的接口文件。NLTK中的这些接口利用了Linux 下的管道(PIPE)机制和subprocess模块,这里直接贴源代码了,感兴趣的同学可以自行阅读:
