Engineering Eco-Friendly Slippers

User Reviews Analysis computational thinking module

Students consider how a computer could be used to analyze qualitative data collected from slipper users. Students explore a simple machine learning algorithm that identifies words frequently used in positive and negative user reviews.

When students launch each activity, it will open and run in their browser with MATLAB Online.

Labeling Reviews

Label user reviews as positive or negative to create training data.

Finding Patterns

View which words occur frequently in positive or negative reviews.

Removing Overlap

Test how well the algorithm is able to categorize user reviews.

Improving Accuracy

Manipulate parameters and see the impact on the algorithm’s accuracy.
