How to use Power App - AI Builder Sentiment Analysis Prebuilt Productivity Model

Articles 2 min read

In this article, I would like to show you how easy it is to create a Power App and use Sentiment Analysis, which is a readily available AI Builder prebuilt productivity model in Power Platform.

What is the Power App Sentiment Analysis prebuilt model?

Before learning how to use the Sentiment Analysis prebuilt model, let’s have a look at what is Sentiment Analysis.

As per Microsoft docs,

The sentiment analysis prebuilt model detects positive or negative sentiment in text data. You can use it to analyze social media, customer reviews, or any text data you're interested in. Sentiment analysis evaluates text input and gives scores and labels at a sentence and document level. The scores and labels can be positive, negative, or neutral. At the document level, there can also be a "mixed" sentiment label, which has no score. The sentiment of the document is determined by aggregating the sentence scores.

In short, the sentiment analysis prebuilt model detects positive or negative sentiment in text data. We can use it to analyse text data from social media, or customer reviews, or really any text data.

Model output

The sentiment analysis model outputs the following information when text is detected:

Sentiment

  • Positive
  • Negative
  • Neutral
  • Mixed

Scores

Scores are values in the range from 0 through 1. Values close to 1 indicate greater confidence that the identified sentiment is accurate.

Sentences

List of sentences from the input text with analysis of its sentiment.

Each sentence itself has a sentiment and score associated with it which is similar to Document Sentiment and Document score.

What are we going to build?

We will build a simple one screen Power App where a user will be allowed to input data as sentences. The user will then click on a button and the Power App will display the sentiment analysis result of input data.

The following screen show shows the sentiment analysis of a single sentence “I like the Modern Work Blogs”.
