Using Sentiment Analysis To Fill In The Gaps From User Surveys

schedule May 14th 02:05 - 02:35 PM place Wesley Theatre people 211 Interested

We put a year's worth of online help chat logs from a major Australian Superannuation website through Google's Natural Language API, to see what insights we could gain from the users. This talk will discuss how the Natural Language API works, and the underlying machine learning concepts, and also give you some ideas on how to make use of the information based on examples from our work. We'll compare the sentiment values with those expressed in exit surveys and find out how useful an indicator it can be.

    Hi Gareth,

    For this conference, can you ensure that this talk is more than just walk through of the Google API or a straight tutorial.

    See you there!
