Reflection 1 (R1)

After careful considerations and preliminary research, I formulated my research question. Being from an Indian background, whenever I talked to people, it always troubled me that every next person had a conflicting opinion on political parties. So, to find the most efficient way to analyse these opinions, I decided to research on Sentiment analysis, I’m comparing the neural network approach to the algorithmic approach, using Tweets. So far the biggest obstacle I encountered was choosing a robust piece of software for each approach. Which I overcame after pre-testing and solving installation bugs. I’m looking forward to conducting my experiment because it widens my knowledge in the field of A.I. while also benefiting me on a personal level. For me, the next hurdle would be neural network training which I am looking forward to. I believe my research question is also strong due to the amount of benchmarking data available.
