Loved by learners at thousands of companies
Have you left a review to express how you feel about a product or a service? And do you have a habit of checking a product’s reviews online before you buy it? This kind of information is valuable not only for you but also for companies. In this course, you will learn how to make sense of the sentiment expressed in various documents. You will use real-world datasets featuring tweets, movie and product reviews, and use Python’s nltk and scikit-learn packages. By the end of the course, you will be able to carry an end-to-end sentiment analysis task based on how US airline passengers expressed their feelings on Twitter.

Numeric Features from Reviews
Imagine you are in the shoes of a company offering a variety of products. You want to know which of your products are bestsellers and most of all - why. We embark on step 1 of understanding the reviews of products, using a dataset with Amazon product reviews. To that end, we transform the text into a numeric form and consider a few complexities in the process.Bag-of-words50 xpWhich statement about BOW is true?50 xpYour first BOW100 xpBOW using product reviews100 xpGetting granular with n-grams50 xpSpecify token sequence length with BOW100 xpSize of vocabulary of movies reviews100 xpBOW with n-grams and vocabulary size100 xpBuild new features from text50 xpTokenize a string from GoT100 xpWord tokens from the Avengers100 xpA feature for the length of a review100 xpCan you guess the language?50 xpIdentify the language of a string100 xpDetect language of a list of strings100 xpLanguage detection of product reviews100 xp

Let's Predict the Sentiment
We employ machine learning to predict the sentiment of a review based on the words used in the review. We use logistic regression and evaluate its performance in a few different ways.
