Project-SMS Spam Classification (In-class)

Project-Hate Speech Classification

Hate speech is an unfortunately common occurrence on the Internet. Often social media sites like Facebook and Twitter face the problem of identifying and censoring problematic posts while weighing the right to freedom of speech. The importance of detecting and moderating hate speech is evident from the strong connection between hate speech and actual hate crimes. Early identification of users promoting hate speech could enable outreach programs that attempt to prevent an escalation from speech to action. The objective of this task is to detect hate speech in tweets. For the sake of simplicity, we say a tweet contains hate speech if it has a racist or sexist sentiment associated with it. So, the task is to classify racist or sexist tweets from other tweets.
Project-Hate Speech Classification

Project- Categorization of Sports Articles (In-class)

Document categorization or segregation is an important NLP task which is used across a wide range of industries. In this project, we will learn to segregate sports articles using an unsupervised technique called Topic Modelling. We will categorize the articles based on the content of the articles, i.e., similar articles will be grouped together.
