# Sentiment analysis with a simple naive Bayes classifier in Go

I was reading the Master Algorithm by Pedro Domingos recently. It’s a fascinating read, with some interesting ideas. In the book, Domingos proposed that machine learning algorithms can be placed into one of 5 tribes – symbolists, connectionists, evolutionaries, Bayesians and analogizers. Each one of these tribes has a master algorithm of its own. The symbolists’ is the inverse deduction (decision tree), the connectionists’ is the backpropagation (neural network), the evolutionaries is genetic programming (genetic algorithms), the Bayesians is Bayes’ theorem and the analogizers’ is the support vector machine (SVM).
