Emma is currently doing a PhD and finds making a poster a tedious process and one which needn't be manual!
What it does
It parsed the source file and builds a model of the document in Python. The sections and figures are assessed on their importance and then either included or excluded in the poster. The long passages of text are summarised using an NLP API from Aylien. The summarised information is then inserted into a LaTeX poster template.
How we built it
In Python, in a hurry!
Challenges we ran into
LaTeX is a pain at the best of times...
Accomplishments that we're proud of
What we learned
Things take longer than you expect.
