Is a Computational Linguist also a programmer?

It’s not clear to me whether or not someone whose work aims to improve an NLP system may be called a “Computational Linguist” even when she/he doesn’t modify the algorithm directly by coding. Let’s consider the following activities: Annotation for Machine Learning: analysis of Morphology, Syntax, POS tagging Annotation, analysis, and annotation of entities (NER)…

Augmentation techniques for dimesionality reduction of feature vector

Given a pre-trained CNN model, I extract feature vector of images in reference and query dataset with several thousands of elements. I would like to apply some augmentation techniques to reduce the feature vector dimension to speed up cosine similarity/euclidean distance matrix calculation. I have already come up with the following two methods in my…
