Research into sentiment analysis and its capabilities at analysing product reviews has increased tremendously in recent years. In this paper, we propose an approach to classify product reviews and identify use cases. Several iterations showing the application of natural language processing techniques and machine learning classifications are depicted. A number of machine learning classifiers are trained/tested in various iterations, their performance and accuracy at predicting the existence of use cases in product reviews is evaluated.
