Meet up

Building a Trump/Obama Tweet Classifier with 98% accuracy in 1 hour!

Tuesday, 19th June in London

This meetup was organised by ODSC in June 2018

Overview

Building a Trump/Obama Tweet Classifier with 98% accuracy in 1 hour!

To find such an application I challenged myself to build a Naive Bayesian tweet classifier. Classifying the author of any given tweet as President Obama or President Trump respectively, resulting in 98% accuracy!

This talk will go through scraping the data, building the classifier (without 'recoding the wheel') and showing how the model was verified.

Along with some live coding of the whole thing in JavaScript!
