Location: Valentine 205-6
Date: Tuesday, January 30, 2018
Speaker: Anna Izzo
Title: Sentiment Analysis, Made Easy by R
Abstract: In a world that is ever-evolving, people are no longer complaining about companies through their 1-800 numbers. Rather, if a company's products or services are disliked, consumers visit social media platforms, such as Facebook, twitter, Instagram, etc., and post their complaints in plain sight. Because of this, companies must show dilagence in listening and responding to those who reach out in this manner.
Over the summr, Anna Izzo worked to undestand and improve the efficiency and accuracy of determining sentiment through automation, istead of human power. From back end to front, she will how she created a model in R to score over 15000 tweets in less than 20 seconds-now that's fast!
