Why pure Sentiment Analysis does not work in today’s Industries

Sentiment analysis has been widely used by several types of industries for the last decades. Not only it can produce helpful insights, but also save time and energy by leveraging the power of machine learning rather than manually gathering and analyzing the information from a bunch of data. It simply classifies whether an input (usually in the form of sentence or document) contains positive or negative opinion. One simple example below clearly indicates that the sentiment is negative.

The fast-tracking approach to AI Ethics is unwise for AI Autonomous Systems 

The existing and ongoing pell-mell rush to get AI systems out-the-door is worrisome. There is a potential price to be paid for the flimsy assumption that soonest AI is the best kind of AI. For example, some have put together contact tracing apps that have AI capabilities to bolster the intended functionality of slowing or preventing the spread of the infectious virus, but insufferably those same apps oftentimes are privacy intrusion nightmares.
