Jokes Classification

Posted on May 20, 2018


There are lots of applications of text classification in the commercial world. For example, in the article: Multi-Class Text Classification with Scikit-Learn,  Susan Li described a Machine Learning method to assign new "Consumer Complaint Narrative" to one of 12 categories.

For this project, I used mostly the same methodology to assign a joke to one of 34 categories (according to the Central Comedy page).


The Details:

We have 34 imbalanced classes.

  • Some Tf-idf term weighting results:

  • Model results:

Applying in 5 balanced classes.

  • Exploring some Logistic Regression results:
    • The model apparently does not differentiate "money jokes" to  "looking good jokes" very well.
    • "dirty jokes" and "insults jokes" are often classified as "miscellaneous jokes", probably because "miscellaneous jokes" has an ample definition. So i needs more investigation.


Tuning the models parameters properly: as we can see in my git hub, the model are flat.

Finding the appropriate metrics to compare the model’s performance.
