After seeing Watson destroy on Jeopardy and talking to Vslothe about some of the technology behind Watson, I decided to read up on some Natural Language Processing.  Needless to say it's a pretty complex subject and caused me to have to drink heavily but it is pretty interesting stuff.

Has anyone here done anything with it in the past?  I'm thinking of a doing a project with it so I'm wondering if anyone's got any experience in that arena.

The tool that Vsloathe came across is called OpenNLP and you can find some information about it here: http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/opennlp/index.php?title=Main_Page

The course notes on the MIT link are fantastic and will get you rolling. most of the stuff isn't very difficult to program once you see how it works.
