I keep an intermittent diary of my PhD work. This is a disjointed monologue of little general interest - quite blog-like in fact.

I'm interested in relation extraction from text and in automatic ontology building, in the context of the Semantic Web and text databases.

Gliding is what life is mostly about, but I'm also a closet Munro-bagger. Being a Member of a Royal Commission occupies me too.

Welcome to the Web site of Kate Byrne. I'm a post-doctoral researcher in the School of Informatics at Edinburgh University, specialising in computational linguistics. Before that I worked at the National Library of Scotland as Head of Computer Services.
Some shortcuts around my little site and to related places:
A new recommendation for this year: check out Tullibole Castle. They run a wonderful sounding B&B and self-catering business. I love the idea of staying in an early 17th Century "laird's house" - see the Canmore entry for it. I came across the castle when I dropped in from the air on 18th March 2012: I landed just across the road in my glider, after running out of lift.
