How to build a Sentiment Analysis app with Artificial Intelligence AI and Python, starter project for middle school and high school students

Want to get started building AI apps? At AIClub we have helped thousands of kids who have gone on to build many thousands of apps with AI, Python, and more. In this blog, we show you a simple app that can get you started with AI and Python - a sentiment detector.

What is Sentiment Analysis?

Sentiment Analysis is a type of AI that can detect how a user is feeling (their mood) from text, images, sounds or video. It is used by many businesses to assess customer sentiment. For example, if a customer sends an email, this type of AI can be used to detect whether the customer is angry. Based on the conclusion, the business can respond differently, for example via email to neutral customers, and via phone calls to angry ones.

What are we going to build?

We are going to build a python app that can send sentences to an AI and have the AI predict the mood. We will start by building an AI to learn patterns of mood from sentences, and then we will create a python program to connect with this AI.
