K-Nearest Neighbor (KNN) untuk Menganalisis Sentimen terhadap Kebijakan Merdeka Belajar Kampus Merdeka pada Komentar Twitter
On December 11, 2019, the Minister of Education and Culture of the Republic of Indonesia Nadiem Anwar Makarim issued a policy of "Merdeka Belajar". Netizens on Twitter have debated this Merdeka Belajar and became a trending topic. This study tries to analyze the sentiment of tweets about opinions on this policy by classifying whether it is a positive opinion or a negative opinion. The classification method applied is the K-Nearest Neighbor algorithm. In this study, four main processes were carried out, namely text-preprocessing, word-weighting (TF-IDF), classification and validation using k-fold cross validation. Tests were carried out with a dataset of 700 data, training was carried out using 630 training data and 70 testing data. In testing, the highest accuracy of the K-Nearest Neighbor algorithm was obtained at the k-8 value, namely 84.28%. Furthermore, validation is carried out using k-fold cross validation with a value of fold = 10 to get an accuracy of 84.42%.
