How Oracle Uses CrowdFlower's Data Enrichment Platform For Sentiment Analysis

Thursday August 13th 2015, 10:00 AM PST - 45 Minutes

Analyzing sentiment is difficult. You need a ton of data to get a real picture about your users' thoughts and opinions but computers are notoriously bad at parsing nuance in at parsing nuance in language. Sentiment analysis gets even more difficult when you’re looking at social media, where messages are rife with sarcasm, misspellings, acronyms, and images.

The problem is, most companies use out-of-the box solutions like natural language processors. Those tools top out at about 70% accuracy. And those tools really can't go much deeper than "positive" and "negative."

Join this webinar to listen to Randall Sparks, Pallika Kanani (Oracle) and Lukas Biewald (CrowdFlower) talk about how tapping into a global on-demand workforce helps increase accuracy of these sentiment mappings and results.
