Talk#1: Twitter sentiment analysis, by Fiona
In this talk, I will introduce how to use deep learning to figure out sentiment behind tweets. Each tweet can carry either positive or negative feelings. The task is to how to automatically figure out the binary classification. I will map tweets to a reduced semantic space and build a convultional neural network to do classification. I will use Keras to walk you through a quick example. We will discuss whatelse you can do with CNN as well.
