Analyze sentiments in Dialogues

Sentiment analysis is a process of analyzing text data to determine the emotional tone or attitude expressed in it. It involves using natural language processing and machine learning techniques to identify and extract subjective information from text, such as opinions, attitudes, and emotions. Sentiment analysis is commonly used in social media monitoring, customer feedback analysis, brand reputation management, and market research. It can help organizations gain insights into customer sentiment, identify emerging trends, and make data-driven decisions. Sentiment analysis can be performed at different levels, including document-level, sentence-level, and aspect-level analysis. The output of sentiment analysis is typically a numerical score or a categorical label that indicates the polarity of the text, such as positive, negative, or neutral.

Loading the data

As we mapped the JSON data to a graph in a previous section, we are going to use the same graph to collect the dialogue expressed by every actor in the movie. So we have to import the guild_graph.jac code into our sentiment analysis code.

import {*} with './build_graph.jac';

Next, we will create a walker to collect the data while traversing through the nodes of the graph.

walker get_actors_dialogue{
has anchor actors_dict = {};

spawn here walker::build_graph;


children = -->node::actor;

for item in children:
if in actors_dict.dict.keys:
full_dialogue = actors_dict[];
full_dialogue = full_dialogue + item.dialogue;
actors_dict.dict::update({( : full_dialogue});
actors_dict.dict::update({( : item.dialogue.list});
take -->;
with exit {report actors_dict;}
  • has anchor actors_dict = {}; defining an anchor to store the dialogue dictionary.
  • spawn here walker::build_graph; spawning the graph from the root.
  • children = -->node::actor;get all the actor nodes attached to the current scene node in which get_actors_dialogue walker is in.
  • if in actors_dict.dict.keys: is to check whether we already added the actor into actors_dict if it's already added we append only the dialogue to that actor. if not we are adding the as key and item.dialogue as the value to the dictionary in line actors_dict.dict::update({( : item.dialogue.list});
  • with exit {report actors_dict;} returns the actor_dict when the walker exits from the graph.

Predicting the sentiment in sentences

In this section, we are going to do sentiment analysis for the dialogues of every actors. For this we are using Jaseci sentiment module.

walker init{
can sentiment.predict;
has actors_details_dict = spawn here walker::get_actors_dialogue;

for key in actors_details_dict:{
texts = actors_details_dict[key];
pred = sentiment.predict(texts);

else with error{
  • can sentiment.predict; importing the sentiment prediction action.
  • has actors_details_dict = spawn here walker::get_actors_dialogue; assigning the reported values from get_actors_dialogue walker to a variable named actors_details_dict
  • for key in actors_details_dict: looping through keys in actors_details_dict dictionary.
  • pred = sentiment.predict(texts); predicting the sentiment of the texts.
  • You may have noticed in this code snippet we have included exception handling. In Jaseci exceptions can be handled by try {} and else with error {}.

Save all these code snippets in a one jac file. Before executing this code we have to load sentiment action in the jsctl shell.

actions load module jac_nlp.sentiment
jac run jac run sentiment_analysis.jac

If everything is fine you will see an output similar to following.
