dc.description.abstract Sentiment Analysis can be achieved using lexicons and machine learning methods to identify the sentiment of a content and opinion mining of a text. With the large amount of news being generated nowadays through various news websites, it is possible to apply text mining techniques with the purpose of extracting general sentiment of particular news. The emphasis in this case is on using a Sentiment Analysis application to extract sentiment from news headlines. In this thesis, we have proposed a customized model for sentiment evaluation to measure tensions level (using negative and positive scores) for every day on Middle East news headlines in the Arabic media. The data are collected from Arabic media websites like Aljazeera, then the required pre-processing steps are applied. Steps such as stop words and punctuation marks removal, in order to get a pure dataset as an input for the regression learning model. In this thesis, we have used the news headlines with their dates collected over many years ago from five different sites. Also, we have devised a method for collecting the news headlines automatically with their dates, category and description from RSS feed for news websites to use them for future works. In addition, the data were processed and revised by several important tools in Python. Moreover, We have used Google Cloud Translation API in an innovative way to translate headlines automatically. Then, we devised a method for headline labeling to give a score for each one, the Decibel formula is used as a quality measure (sentiment score) for every headline, based on two main lixicons, namely WordNet and SentiWordNet. We have trained a multiple linear regression model based on two important entries for every day, the sum of positive scores and the sum of negative scores on that day, so that the model will measure the sentiment score for that particular day. We have tested the model with important measures, we have obtained 0.937 Explained Variance Score, 0.94 R2 Score and 0.04 MSE through a full year training data. Finally, we have connected the model with Database and Flask server to achieve real time measurement. en_US
