Sentiment Analysis Algorithm
- AKA: Opinion Mining Algorithm.
- It can make use of a set of Opinion Words.
- It can (typically) be a Classification Algorithm.
- It can be:

- This paper presents a simple unsupervised learning algorithm for classifying reviews as recommended (thumbs up) or not recommended (thumbs down). The classification of a review is predicted by the average semantic orientation of the phrases in the review that contain adjectives or adverbs.
