Sarcasm dataset - Tokenizing, Sequencing and Padding

In the previous articles we have discussed Tokenizing, Sequencing and Padding the sentences…now we will apply those methods on a real dataset.


News Headlines Dataset For Sarcasm Detection dataset — 


Each record consists of three attributes:

1. is_sarcastic: 1 if the record is sarcastic otherwise 0

2. headline: the headline of the news article

3. article_link: link to the original news article. Useful in collecting supplementary data


A single item from the dataset

Now we shall see how to apply the methods we have learned

1. Loading the dataset and creating 3 lists to store ‘article_link’, ‘headline’ and ‘url’ info from each data point.


2. Tokenizing, Sequencing and Padding the sentences list.


The length of word_index is 29657. We can see a padded sentence of size 40 i.e the largest sequence is of length 40.


In the upcoming article we will work on exploring BBC News Archive!
