[Purdue-pm] challenge problem: sentiment analysis

Purdue Perl Mongers,
A person (I don't know if they want to be identified offhand)
demonstrated how to get information from federalregistrar.gov and/or (I
forget for sure) regulations.gov during our last meeting using an API.
EPA received more than 270,000 comments on the ANPRM, which have
informed this proposed rulemaking.
[270000 seconds is] 3.3 days
Challenge problem: figure out how to use the API for regulations.gov and
"sentiment analysis" (google it) to automatically classify comments. I
understand regulations.gov limits the rate at which one can download
information but if some "sentiment analysis" software can automatically
classify comments faster/better/cheaper that humans or other existing
software on a small trial, regulations.gov may be interested in that. I
certainly wouldn't want to read 270K comments and summarize them.
