Propaganda is a form of communication that is aimed at influencing the attitude of a community toward some cause or position. It often presents facts selectively to encourage a particular synthesis. The disinformation damages the reputation of respectable news outlets, organisations and very bad for business indeed. The objective of the Hackathon is to be able to detect the Propaganda and Non-propaganda news as well as to develop a model that can help with the venture. The other objectives of this work includes detecting phrases which are propagandist and also finding out the type of propaganda it is. The algorithms that we will be taking help from are Passive Aggressive, Multiple Layer Perceptron Network, Logistic Regression, AdaBoost, Decision Tree, Random Forest, KNN, SVM and Naive Bayes to detect the potentially propagandistic and non-propagandistic sentences in a news article. For the evaluation, we are calculating F1 Score to measure the class imbalance in the testing dataset. We have used the best model for detecting propagandist and non-propagandist articles, phrases and also type of propaganda.
Problem statement :This data set is regarding time series analysis on failure rate of ravens sending the messages from king’s landing to the north . This case study is an analogy on Telenor telecommunications and Game of Thrones . Due to the obstacles that caused the failure rate , various techniques and schemes are employed in the planning, design and optimization of raven networks to combat these propagation effects.
We have used R-studio for Exploratory Data Analysis.
As per the tasks given to us , we concluded that
1.Brass Raven Birdy has been delayed for the most number of times , followed by Brown raven ruby and Yellow raven Rio,
while Metallic Sunburst Raven Polly has been delayed for the least number of times , followed by Green Sheen raven Azul and Less combative raven zazu.
2. The family with most fails is Targerian , while with least fails is Lannister
3. The family Member with most fails is Petyr Baelish and with least fails is Euron .
We have done further analysis on predicting the fails for the next four days using TIME SERIES ANALYSIS
