AI - Natural Language Processing by Karan Shukla

Senior Karan Shukla, who is learning about Artificial Intelligence in Frisco ISD’s Independent Study and Mentorship program, is pursuing the study of Natural Language Processing. By researching online, reading books, and attending university lectures, Karan has gained a greater understanding of his field and the work that is being done in it. Independent Study and Mentorship has also given Karan more valuable experience e-mailing and interacting with professionals. Karan has used his learning of artificial intelligence theory to code SAM, the Sentiment Analyzer of Movies, a program that utilizes a large body of movie reviews and the Naive Bayesian Classifier algorithm to determine the positive or negative tone of movie reviews. Working under his mentor, UTD Professor Yang Liu, Karan hopes to further his learning of natural language processing and its applications in real world problems.
