Programming Assignment Explanation

• Fortune Cookie Classifier¹

You will build a binary fortune cookie classifier. This classifier will be used to classify

fortune cookie messages into two classes: messages that predict what will happen in

the future (class 1) and messages that just contain a wise saying (class 0). For example,

"Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line" would be a message in class

0.

"You will get an A in Machine learning class" would be a message in class 1.
