This project can be used to classify reviews as positive or negative and can be applied to any movie review dataset. This project provided hands-on skills in deep learning concepts such as RNN and LSTM for building sentiment review text classification projects using TensorFlow Keras.

We’ll be using a Long Short-Term Memory (LSTM) network, which is a type of recurrent neural network (RNN). LSTM networks are well-suited for time series data, which is what we’ll be using them for. The dataset we’ll be using is the Rotten Tomatoes movie review dataset. This dataset contains 5,331 positive and 5,331 negative reviews, and we’ll be using an 80-20 split for training and testing. We’ll be using the Keras library to build our LSTM network. Keras is a high-level API for building deep-learning models. It’s simple to use and can be run on top of TensorFlow, Theano, or Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit (CNTK).

Our model will take in a review (a sequence of words) and output a sentiment score. A sentiment score of 0.5 or greater will be classified as a positive review, and a sentiment score of less than 0.5 will be classified as a negative review.
