Machine Learning: Let Your Code Learn From Text

Machine learning — it’s a term you’ve probably heard before. Nowadays, it’s deeply integrated in different sectors, from spam filters to automated driving cars. There is a lot of math and statistics behind these algorithms, but today there are many great tools we can use without being a math professor. In this blog post, I’m going to smoothly introduce you to supervised text classification — showing you how to build a simple language detection app using third-party libraries written in JavaScript. Classifiers A classifier classifies data for us —“this email is spam” or “this text is in English,” for example. To have a good classification, we need to train our classifier. We’ll have some data where we already know the classification, which in machine learning is called a label. The…
