Sentiment analysis is a process to determine the content of text-based datasets which are positive or negative. At present, public opinion be an important resource in the decision of a person in finding a solution. Classification algorithms such as Support Vector Machine (SVM) and K-Nearest Neighbor (K-NN) is proposed by many researchers to be used in sentiment analysis for review opinion. The problem in this research is the selection of feature selection to improve accuracy values Support Vector Machine (SVM) and K-Nearest Neighbor (K-NN) and compare the highest accuracy for sentiment analysis review public opinion about the news of forest fires. The comparison algorithms, SVM produces an accuracy of 80.83% and AUC 0.947, then compared with SVM based on PSO with an accuracy of 87.11% and AUC 0.922. The test result data for K-NN algorithm accuracy was 85.00% and the AUC 0.918, then compared for accuracy by k-NN-based PSO amounted to 73.06% and the AUC 0.500. The results of the testing of the PSO algorithm can improve the accuracy of SVM, but are not able to improve the accuracy of the algorithm K-NN. SVM algorithm based on PSO proven to provide solutions to the problems of classification review news opinion forest fires in order to more accurately and optimally.
