chapter, explained about Sentiment analysis and its applications.
1.1 Sentiment Analysis
is nothing but the task of Natural Language Processing. It observes the
attitude of customer behind the comments. Sentiment analysis is a method of identifying
sentiments in text. 1
Decision makers better understand customers point of view using sentiment
analysis and can make decision accordingly. Business analysis application can
be developed by using this technique. 2
is computational methodology of extracting sentiments from text, speech or
dataset. It can classify emotions, attitude, opinion and subjective impression
into polarity. 3
Applications of sentiment analysis
costumer wants to buy any product he/she first check the reviews for that
product. From reviews customer get information of Reputation of product and
opinion of other customers.
opinion of customers to improve their product. According to those opinions
company focuses on unsatisfying aspects of product and work on them.
By using opinion of
customer, appropriate internet ads of products can be automatically proposed.
In this chapter,
literature survey on the existing system is highlighted in reference to the
performance and approach of the current system. As I have read and study some
journal, conference papers which as follows:
2.2 Random Forest
Forest is developed as an ensemble approach based on combine prediction value
of each decision trees. Random Forest uses majority vote method in this
algorithm returns class with majority votes. Sometimes Decision tree grows
deeply and faces problem of overfitting and learn irregular patterns. 23
Forest classifier provides two types of randomness:1) randomness with respect
to data and 2) randomness with respect to features. Random Forest classifier
uses the concept of Bagging and Bootstrapping.
Features of Random Forest
are two features of random forest which are as follows:
are number of decision trees in random forest and random forest uses concept of
bootstrapping so, each tree consider random subset of training data. That means
each tree trains on different data. So, it is much robust for noise.
forest uses the concept of bagging. In this average of all classifiers is
calculated for final output. Giving huge data to single classifier will not
return appropriate result but if those data can divide into number of
classifiers then averaging of results of classifiers will give consistent solute
2.2.1 Decision trees (DT)
algorithms are becoming more popular in machine learning because of its
predictive modeling approach. DT are commonly used algorithms because of its
properties like ease of understanding and interpretation, require little data
preparation, handle numerical and categorical data and comparatively faster
using nodes and edges. Starting point of DT is their root node. Node which has
no incoming edges is known as root node. All other nodes have incoming edges.
The node which has outgoing edges are called internal nodes. The nodes which
has no outgoing edges are leaves or terminal node or decision node. 7 8
Classification and Regression Trees (CART)
Regression Trees (CART)is developed by Breiman, Friedman, Olshen, and Stone, in
1984. CART is binary split type machine learning algorithm. Its main feature is
it can be use in regression problem also. CART allows growing the tree first
and then use pruning. Pruning CART makes small decision trees.
CART can easily handle
both numerical and categorical variables.
CART algorithm will
itself identify the most signi?cant variables and eliminate nonsigni?cant ones.
CART can easily handle
CART may have unstable
decision tree. Insignificant modification of learning sample such as
eliminating several observations and cause changes in decision tree: increase
or decrease of tree complexity, changes in splitting variables and values.
CART splits only by one
variable. 7 8
C4.5 decision tree
presented by Quinlan, in 1993. It is extension of ID3 decision tree algorithm. The
decision tree grows using Depth-first strategy. C4.5 allows pruning. C4.5 can handle noisy data, missing values
and numeric attribute.
C4.5 can handle both
continuous and discrete attributes.
C4.5 goes back through
the tree once it’s been created and attempts to remove branches that do not
help by replacing them with leaf nodes.
C4.5 constructs empty
branches. It creates many nodes with zero values or close to zero values. These
values neither contribute to generate rules nor help to construct any class for
classification task. Rather it makes the tree bigger and more complex.
C4.5 algorithm constructs
tree and grows it branches to perfectly classify the data. This strategy
performs well with noise free data. But over fits the training examples with
Susceptible to noise. 7
Automatic Interaction Detector (CHIAD) developed by Kass in 1980. This tree is
based on statistical hypothesis testing. It mostly used as tool to segment or
grow trees. This can be used as classification as well as regression tree. It
is not a binary split decision tree, it is multiway splitting tree. It can analyze
complex interaction between variables. 7 9
output is highly visual and easy to
Machine is a supervised machine learning algorithm used for classification and
regression. It is very popular machine learning algorithm because of its
predictive performance in classification and regression. It is mostly considered
as extension of traditional feedforward network. SVM solves classification using
hyperplane. Hyperplane accomplish classification which ensure maximum
separation between data. Data used in SVM can be more than 2 dimensional and
SVM can separate data using (n-1) dimensional hyperplane where n is dimension
of data. Kernel function can be used in SVM for converting low dimensional
nonlinear problems to high dimensional linear problem. There are many kernels:
linear kernel, Gaussian kernel, radial basis function and so on. 267

Computational Technologies (ICICCT), 2017 International Conference on. IEEE, 2017.
This paper discusses the
sentiment classification on Machine Learning Methods in detail. By using Random
Forest Classifier, it shows that the result is obtained with greater accuracy
and performance. But the classifier requires high processing power and training
time. Support Vector Machine provides
excellent accuracy as compared to many other classifiers. Lexical based
approaches are ideally aggressive because it requires manual work on document.
Maximum Entropy also performs better but it is suffered from over fitting.

in chinese language.” Cognitive Computation (2017): 1-13.
This is review paper on two
main approaches of sentiment analysis research: the monolingual approach and
the bilingual. Corpus and Lexicon Approach. Monolingual Approaches- The machine
learning based approach treats the sentiment classification as a topic-based
categorization problem. The knowledge based method uses the sentiment lexicon,
which consists of sentiment polarity for each word, to label the sentiments of
words. The machine learning does not need predefined semantic rules but
requires a labelled dataset. Multilingual Approach- 1) machine translation -ferrous and reduce the
accuracy of translation. 2) structural
correspondence learning (SCL) – link two
languages at the feature-level.
