Opinion mining on Dutch news articles

In this blog post, I will learn you how you can mine opinions about companies from news articles. I will share how I scraped thousands of news articles in a few minutes and how one could classify the opinion expressed in the titles of the news articles. This information could be used for example to help with watching competitors of a company or to predict global trends.

Python Deep Learning tutorial: Create a GRU (RNN) in TensorFlow

MLPs (Multi-Layer Perceptrons) are great for many classification and regression tasks. However, it is hard for MLPs to do classification and regression on sequences. In this Python deep learning tutorial, a GRU is implemented in TensorFlow. Tensorflow is one of the many Python Deep Learning libraries.

By the way, another great article on Machine Learning is this article on Machine Learning fraud detection. If you are interested in another article on RNNs, you should definitely read this article on the Elman RNN.

Python Deep Learning tutorial: Elman RNN implementation in Tensorflow

In this Python Deep Learning tutorial, an implementation and explanation is given for an Elman RNN. The implementation is done in Tensorflow, which is one of the many Python Deep Learning libraries.

A more modern RNN is the GRU. A GRU has less parameters to train and is therefore quite fast. An implementation in Tensorflow of the GRU can be found here.
