Sentiment Analysis and Overview

Sentiments, this word is available in almost everyone's vocabulary, be it the share market fluctuations, a movie review, or a relationship. All of us would have used this word many times in our daily lives. This simple word is of great importance in the world of customer experience and is wisely analyzed. It is a gold mine of suggestions, concerns, and gap solutions, from the customer's lens.

This article simplifies the core of "Sentiment Analysis" and its application in line with the expectations of new-aged customers.

What is Sentiment analysis?

Let us understand what it means. Today, customers raise their concerns via multiple channels, and one of them is "Social Media". A tweet from a customer about a bad experience is way more than a message. It has the customer's sentiments or emotions basis on a particular experience. It will not be wrong to say that "Sentiment Analysis is judging the opinion of a text". This is widely applied to reviews, survey responses, and online and social media applications. 

Sentiment analysis helps wade through that data and determine what people think. It uses machine learning and text mining to provide a complete picture. For example, the Obama administration used sentiment analysis to measure public opinion to campaign messages and policy announcements ahead of the 2012 presidential election.
Application of Sentiment Analysis?
Just Imagine that I am in charge of a product, and I am keen to know how customers view the product. So, I start going through tweets or reviews at the portal.

1. "Your product is so reliable! I love it."
2. "Don't use this product; it's a waste."

This is simple enough. Any basic sentiment analysis software will tell that the first tweet is positive and the second tweet is negative. But human tweets (or expressions) are often much more complicated than that. They convey a wide range of emotions and often require context to understand. Look at the following tweets:

"This product is healthy and non-toxic, which makes it different from others."
"They are not providing the refund, support, and service are so lazy."

At this moment, we want to find some keywords and make it a regression problem that gives a value between some ranges in sentiment value.
