Ratings Reviewed

Reviews are ubiquitous; Amazon, Yelp, etc. depend on user reviews to engage people on their sites, plus the reviews are very helpful to the other users in deciding whether they want to use the services/products or not. But the star ratings can be very subjective. The experience of one user rating a particular business as 3 might be quite equivalent to another user’s experience who rates it as 5. This website uses the sentiment contained in the written reviews from the Yelp Academic Dataset and to produce a standardized star rating.
