Eleven Things Research Pros Should Know about Sentiment Analysis

Seth Grimes: 

Sentiment analysis has been portrayed, variously, as a linchpin of the New MR and as snake oil that produces pseudo-insights that are little better than divination. Who’s right? Me, I’m with the first camp. Automated sentiment analysis, powered by text analytics, infuses explanatory power into stale Likert-reliant methodologies and allows researchers to stay on top of fast emerging trends, and to tap the unprompted voice of the customer, via social listening.

Digital Reasoning Trains World’s Largest Neural Network for LT

In their research, Matthew Russell, Digital Reasoning’s Chief Technology Officer, and his team evaluated neural word embeddings on “word analogy” accuracy. Neural networks generate a vector of numbers for each word in a vocabulary. This allowed the Digital Reasoning team to do “word math.” For instance “king” minus “man” plus “woman” would yield a result of “queen.” There is an industry standard dataset of around 20,000 word analogies. Google's previous accuracy on this metric was a 76.2% accuracy rate. In other words, Google was able to get 76.2% of the word analogies "correct" in their system. Stanford's best score is a 75.0% accuracy. Digital Reasoning’s model achieves a score of 85.8% accuracy, which is a near 40% reduction in error over both Google and Stanford. This is a massive advancement in the state of the art.
