Title
Analysis of sentiment and its intensity – feedback from airport guests
Description
ABC (name intentionally obfuscated) is one of the best managed and highly profitable airports  in India. As with all well managed airports, ABC would like to understand what guests feel about their experience when traveling, using or transiting through their airport. ABC has a website in which guests can visit and leave behind a comment, agree or disagree with others’ comments, or respond to a comment confirming or negating the expressed opinion.

The goal of this contest is to create a summarization of the opinions, feelings and sentiments expressed in the comments left behind by guests on the website. This information is being provided as data for solvers. Some understanding of the intensity of the opinion, feeling or sentiment will also be useful. For example, if there is a consistent demand for more spas across guest conversations, it needs to be highlighted.  Consistent positive or negative sentiments and opinions need to be discovered and highlighted.
Data
Guest comments have been crawled and provided to you. The data consists approximately 1000 comments from guests including the timestamp of those comments.  Personal information (name, email etc) have been hidden. This data is publicly available
Solver Expectations:
Participants may submit entries before the deadline. If a participant submits multiple entries, the entry submitted last before the deadline will be considered as the participant’s submission.
The following deliverables are expected to be submitted:
  • a report expressing the results of the opinion and sentiment mining
