bayes: A Naive-Bayes classifier for node.js
bayes takes a document (piece of text), and tells you what category that document belongs to.
What can I use this for?
You can use this for categorizing any text content into any arbitrary set of categories. For example:
- is an email spam, or not spam ?
- is a news article about technology, politics, or sports ?
- is a piece of text expressing positive emotions, or negative emotions?
npm install bayes
var bayes =var classifier =// teach it positive phrasesawait classifierawait classifier// teach it a negative phraseawait classifier// now ask it to categorize a document it has never seen beforeawait classifier// => 'positive'// serialize the classifier's state as a JSON string.var stateJson = classifier// load the classifier back from its JSON representation.var revivedClassifier = bayes
var classifier = bayes([options])
Returns an instance of a Naive-Bayes Classifier.
Pass in an optional
options object to configure the instance. If you specify a
tokenizer function in
options, it will be used as the instance's tokenizer. It receives a (string)
text argument - this is the string value that is passed in by you when you call
.categorize(). It must return an array of tokens. The default tokenizer removes punctuation and splits on spaces.
var classifier =var classifier2 =
Teach your classifier what
text belongs to. The more you teach your classifier, the more reliable it becomes. It will use what it has learned to identify new documents that it hasn't seen before.
category (with promise) it thinks
text belongs to. Its judgement is based on what you have taught it with .learn().
Returns the JSON representation of a classifier.
var classifier = bayes.fromJson(jsonStr)
Returns a classifier instance from the JSON representation. Use this with the JSON representation obtained from
