During the last week I encountered a few problems with my project

  • While working on the demo, I noticed that the classifier is not doing a good job classifying liberal news sites. It classified a few articles on CNN and Slate as either conservative or neutral. This can be due to the fact that these articles, uses a lot of conservative related terms to criticize the conservative perspectives, which misled the classifier to classify them as non-liberal
  • The native messaging module to communicate between the classifier and the chrome extension refuses to connect when the classifier module is imported. I have discussed this with Ajit and we are both working on it. Once we figure out a solution, the extension can communicate with the classifier so the remaining work should be minimal and mostly front-end related.
