Workshop: Build your own Sentiment Analysis, Zurich

- Zurich

This event is co-organized with the DoData meetup group by Quantum Analytics.

Do you want to know what your customers, users, contacts, relatives really think?

Find out by building your own sentiment analysis application. In this workshop we will work together to build such an application, step by step, in KNIME Analytics Platform. That is: data access, text cleaning, stemming, dictionary tagging, text visualization and machine learning techniques.

We are also planning to reserve the last 30 minutes of the workshop for a Q&A session with Vincenzo and Rosaria, the authors of the book on text mining “From Words To Wisdom”. So, if you have a burning question about text mining or if you get one while working on the sentiment analysis application during the workshop, here is your chance to ask the experts!

In order to get the most out of this hands-on workshop, you should bring your own laptop with KNIME Analytics Platform pre-installed. However, it is also possible to work in groups sharing a laptop (a few laptops will also be made available).

To install KNIME Analytics Platform, follow the instructions provided in these YouTube videos:
