I have been trying to learn machine learning .I want to practice it using a sample application. Can sentiment analysis be a good sample application to learn machine learning ? I am.thinking that based on past history data , a model will get trained to categorize the sentiment of a sentence to be positive or negative or neutral and when user will enter a sentence ,it will predict and tell whether it is of positive ,negative  or neutral sentiment.Is this use case ok or  I need to look for a more suitable use case to practice it ?

Thanks

Machine learning is a vast topic. Sentiment analysis IMHO is a good candidate for a first approach; there are lot of free dataset and example on the web, the training of the model shouldn't take to much time so that you can taste ML without a great effort.
