Sentiment analysis and natural language processing are common problems to solve using machine learning techniques. Having accurate and good answers to questions without trudging through reviews requires the application of deep learning techniques such as neural networks. In this course, Sentiment Analysis with Recurrent Neural Networks in TensorFlow, you'll learn how to utilize recurrent neural networks (RNNs) to classify movie reviews based on sentiment. First, you'll discover how to generate word embeddings using the skip-gram method in the word2vec model, and see how this neural network can be optimized by using a special loss function, the noise contrastive estimator. Next, you'll delve into understanding RNNs and how to implement an RNN to classify movie reviews, and compare and contrast the neural network implementation with a standard machine learning model, the Naive Bayes algorithm. Finally, you'll learn how to implement the same RNN but with pre-built word embeddings. By the end of this course, you'll be able to understand and implement word embedding algorithms to generate numeric representations of text, and know how to build a basic classification model with RNNs using these word embeddings.
