[GSOC] Scriptable SMS parsing

Hi,
I am pre-final year student at IIIT-Hyderabad , India pursuing my B Tech Honors and MS in Natural Language Processing field. I have been involved with Open-Source development since past one year and also participated in GSOC - 13 with Sahana Software Foundation.
I am interested in working for DHIS2 this summer on the project Scriptable SMS parsing.I would be very much obliged if someone could guide me on how to proceed on this project.

I am done with the installation part and currently I am going through the documentation.

Regards,

IIIT-H, Hyderabad

Hi Mayank,

Welcome to the community.
I’m glad to hear that you’ve completed installation without any issues. I hope you can help other students resolve issues that they come up with on the mailing list.

As you might have already seen, DHIS 2 can connect with an SMS gateway.

This is the documentation page - http://www.dhis2.org/doc/snapshot/en/user/html/ch24s05.html

Most of this work was done by a UiO Master student, Magnus Korvald.
If you’ve got some time read his thesis - https://www.duo.uio.no/bitstream/handle/10852/37426/korvald_master.pdf?sequence=1

The goal of the project is to be able to read incoming SMS through a scripting language. A user should be able to write rules and map incoming text to DHIS2 data elements.

Your experience from natural language processing could be useful, since you can give us ideas on how to improve SMS data detection.

Long and Peder Andreas will be able to tell you more, if you can come up with more concrete suggestions.

Saptarshi PURKAYASTHA
