After gathering and tagging the data, you will be ready to train a classifier using MonkeyLearn. For this, you should follow these steps:
- Create a new classifier using MonkeyLearn UI. In this step, you will be asked for some information related to your project via a creation wizard.
- Upload the training data using the CSV/Excel file with the data that you gathered and tagged. If you don't already have tagged data, you will be prompted to create the categories and assign them to enough samples for the module to work with.
- Train your classifier: it will take a few seconds or minutes depending on the complexity of the category tree and amount of data uploaded. You’ll see a progress bar on the top (see image below).
