Data mining deals with extraction of useful knowledge from various data sources. Textual data is one of valuable data sources for data mining which is getting more and more popular especially among the companies who would like to know what their customers think about their services and products. In fact, one can tap the opinion of people about a current issue by just analyzing the tweets related to that issue. In general sentiment analysis tries to understand what people think about a specific issue through text mining and natural language processing techniques. In this course, we will do a review of text mining techniques, and study sentiment analysis.
