Sentiment Analysis in a Post Grammatical World
Presented by: Danny Tran, Disney
How do we determine the sentiment of text in a world where syntax and grammer are thrown out of the window? Utilizing Node and Natural, a NLP (Natural Language Processing) toolkit, we'll go through a few techniques ranging from manual polarity determination to machine learning classification, all the while highlighting the challenges of analyzing text in a "post-grammatical" world.
