Week 7: Gathering More Data

Apr 08, 2019

During week 7, I met my external advisor to review the progress I have made in the last week. I needed to gather more articles as data because I only had a little bit of data for training and testing and needed more to get more accurate results. I went on websites such as New York Times, ESPN, and Sports Illustrated to search for articles about sports. By the end of the week, I found 500 articles and created an evaluateAccuracy method that calculates the accuracy, precision, and recall of each topic of sports.

Next week, I will be using a n-fold cross validation technique to train the classifier.

Thanks for reading!
