Abstract: Natural language processing is a field in computer science which involves making computers derive meaning from human language and input as a way of interacting with the real world. Broadly speaking, sentiment analysis is the act of determining the attitude of an author or speaker, with respect to a certain topic or the overall context and is an application of the natural language processing field. This essay discusses the implementation of a Twitter chat bot that uses natural language processing and sentiment analysis to construct a believable reply. This is done in the Python programming language, using a statistical method called Naive Bayes classifying supplied by the NLTK Python package. The essay concludes that applying natural language processing and sentiment analysis in this isolated fashion was simple, but achieving more complex tasks greatly increases the difficulty.
