      The objective of the "Sentiment Analysis" component is to determine the sentiment of the author towards the object of his text.

      Different techniques are proposed in the academic literature, and some state of the art approaches present very high accuracy.

      Sentiment analysis can have different granularity levels:

      • Binary classification: in this case, the text is to be classified into two classes which are "positive" and "negative".
      • Ternary classification: in addition to the two classes present in the binary classification, a third class is added which is "neutral".
      • Multi-class sentiment analysis: the two classes "positive" and "negative" are further divided into sub-classes (e.g., "love" happiness", etc. for the positive class; and "hate", "anger", etc. for the negative class). Therefore the classification objective is to determine the sentiment sub-class instead of the main polarity

      In this component, we will implement some of the state of the art approaches, in particular the one presented here[1]. approaches use machine-learning techniques to learn a classifier from labeled training sets.
