A completely beginner’s question: I have short text sequences (names of dishes) and I want to decide a few things about each item (e.g. whether the dish is vegetarian, whether it is sweet, type of cuisine, …). I thought it was a classification task (e.g. assigning the tag: is_vegetarian/is_not_vegetarian, Czech/French/Greek/… cuisine, …). Am I wrong? I’m running into the fact that the classification task seems to always be narrowed down to sentiment analysis (and positive/negative tags).
Ugh. Despite reading various manuals and discussions here, I’m still lost. It seems more and more likely that I’m just completely off the mark and overlooking something fundamental. Would someone please point me in the right direction?
(I want to solve the problem for a language other than English which adds to my disorientation a bit.)
Thank you for all your tips and help.
