Lytics Seminar – Week 5 – Class Notes

This week we kept on advancing on the Machine Learning, more specifically about textual analysis. We went over the “bag of words” technique of trying to make predictions about the type of annotation created with Laguna Stories.

Seems a little counterintuitive that by simply analyzing the word count in the comments would generate any viable conclusion, yet it seems like it could. Not to say that this is magic, but very detailed work in coding the information, training the algorithm with enough data, and then iterating through the process of adjusting the parameters, groupings, and sometimes even going back to coding the data.
