Abstract
This paper presents the participation of #WarTeam in Task 6 of SemEval2017 with a system classifying humor by comparing and ranking tweets. The training data consists of annotated tweets from the @midnight TV show. #WarTeam’s system uses a neural network (TensorFlow) having inputs from a Naïve Bayes humor classifier and a sentiment analyzer.
