Sentiment Analysis of 11 Million Tweets from Apple Live 2014 - Going beyond positive and negative

@machinelearnbot

This blog was originally published on our Text Analysis blog, the blog post set out to analyze and visualize 11 million tweets collected around the time of and during Apple Live 2014. Apple Live probably got off to the worst start possible earlier this year. Most of us who tried to log on to watch the much-anticipated launch were first, forced to watch the live feed in Safari and second, greeted with the TV Truck Schedule Screen... To add to this Apple also made a complete mess of the audio. We were left sitting refreshing the page, waiting for the stream to start while being subjected to an audio visual nightmare, described brilliantly by this "fan" below: To simulate the #applelive experience, open up several separate YouTube vids, play them simultaneously, minimize, stare at a test pattern. At AYLIEN, we gathered 11 million tweets mentioning'Apple', 'iPhone', 'iOS', 'iPad', 'Mac', 'iPod', 'Macbook', 'iCloud', 'OS X', 'iWatch' and '#AppleLive' from the 4th of September to the 10th of September with a view of analyzing the tweets to gain insight into the voice of Apple Followers.


Sentiment Analysis on Social Network Data (Twitter, Facebook, etc.)

Sentiment analysis is a useful service for just about any business. It is always valuable to know whether your customers are saying positive or negative things about you. This gives you more flexibility to start with their sample and then tweak it to your needs. Then you would deploy it yourself and call it yourself.


Hey Google, do you really record everything I say? Yes.

Google says it only records interactions with connected devices like the Google Home speaker when we use the "wake word," of "Hey, Google," or "OK, Google." But when using many of the Google smartphone apps with a microphone for voice search, or even Google on the desktop with voice commands, it can actually record every word you say to it – whether you use the wake word or not. The fine print is that you have to click on the microphone in the apps to communicate with Google. Once you do that, Google will start transcribing you, word for word, and storing your commands, in text and audio, as USA TODAY discovered in tests this week. This is similar to Google's monitoring of our keystrokes.

Sentiment classification on Twitter has attracted increasing research in recent years.Most existing work focuses on feature engineering according to the tweet content itself.In this paper, we propose a context-based neural network model for Twitter sentiment analysis, incorporating contextualized features from relevant Tweets into the model in the form of word embedding vectors.Experiments on both balanced and unbalanced datasets show that our proposed models outperform the current state-of-the-art.

In the right architecture, machine-learning functionality takes data analytics to the next level of value. Editor's note: This guest post (translated from Italian and originally published in late 2016) by Lorenzo Ridi, of Google Cloud Platform partner Noovle of Italy, describes a POC for building an end-to-end analytic pipeline on GCP that includes machine-learning functionality. "Black Friday" is traditionally the biggest shopping day of the year in the United States. Black Friday can be a great opportunity to promote products, raise brand awareness and kick-off the holiday shopping season with a bang. During that period, whatever the type of retail involved, it's also becoming increasingly important to monitor and respond to consumer sentiment and feedback across social media channels.
