We love Reddit!
What it does
Run with the Right Crowd is an interface where users can enter a potential Reddit post and they will be returned a dashboard of metrics regarding predictions of how their Reddit post would compare to others. Examples include sentiment analysis and a subreddit predictor
How we built it
The interface is a Flask web app. We used Indico's Machine Learning and Sentiment Analysis APIs.
Challenges we ran into
We had a large database of Reddit posts. It was difficult to use and "learn" the database due to the sheer volume of posts.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We have a large variety of metrics that we output after analyzing the user's potential post. We integrated natural language processing to detect a user's likely score when posting in the suggested subbreddit.
What we learned
We learned how perform machine learning with sentiment analysis. This was the first time that 3/4 of our group members used Python for a project.
What's next for Run With the Right Crowd
Improving the accuracy of the predictions by using the larger dataset for predictions. We would like to test the results using different predictor models.
