Recommendation System for Tourists using Aspect based Sentiment Classification

Santosh Darekar


The tourism is using a large amount of information which is get obtained from different sources to improve services. The simple availability of feedback, evaluations, and impressions from various visitors has made managing the tourism difficult and complex. Because of this using the collected or gathered data to find out tourist tastes is a big challenge for todays tourism industry. However it is observed, many people i. e. user comments in regard to places are not having the good meaning and difficult to understand, making recommendations difficult. Sentiment classification which are based on aspects have shown good performance in the removal of unnecessary data or noise.Work on aspect-based sentiment with classification is not that much which can play important role in the accurate classification work. This paper introduces a framework for an aspect-based sentiment classification recommendation method and this method uses deep learning algorithms like RNN to not only classify aspects quickly, but also to perform classification tasks with high accuracy. The framework helps to tourists in order to locate the best location, hotel, and restaurant in a region, and its effectiveness has been assessed through experiments on real-time review classification.
