The field of sentiment analysis and natural language processing (NLP) in general has had a boost in interest with new techniques that have come from the progress made with neural networks and deep learning. In this demo I will show you how to build a sentiment prediction model using the dialogue for the Simpsons TV show. The demo is built using a combination of R, Spark (Sparklyr + SparkNLP) and a BERT model. And you will find out who the happiest Simpsons' character is. Hint: It's not Ned Flanders.
