[Malaysia] Analyzing Twitter for Noncommunicable Disease Information

Primary supervisor

Wai Peng Wong

This project aims to analyse the comments of Twitter  on non-communicable diseases.  Students are expected to carry out Aspects Detection to identify the specific aspects discussed in the tweets e.g., causes, transmission and symptoms. Subsequently,  students are expected to conduct sentiment analysis utilizing tools like TextBlob or VADER, while also taking into account the importance of considering emojis to enhance classification accuracy. Students also need to provide solutions to the problem of ironic  tweets (e.g., seem positive but actually negative) and misinformation.
