Dataset of 25,000 movies reviews from IMDB, labeled by sentiment (positive/negative). Reviews have been preprocessed, and each review is encoded as a sequence of word indexes (integers). For convenience, words are indexed by overall frequency in the dataset, so that for instance the integer "3" encodes the 3rd most frequent word in the data. This allows for quick filtering operations such as: "only consider the top 10,000 most common words, but eliminate the top 20 most common words".

The start of a sequence will be marked with this character. Set to 1 because 0 is usually the padding character.
Words that were cut out because of the

Lists of training and test data:
train$x, train$y, test$x, test$y.
x data includes integer sequences. If the
num_words argument was
specific, the maximum possible index value is
num_words-1. If the
maxlen`` argument was specified, the largest possible sequence length is maxlen`.
y data includes a set of integer labels (0 or 1).
dataset_imdb_word_index() function returns a list where the
names are words and the values are integer.
As a convention, "0" does not stand for a specific word, but instead is used to encode any unknown word.
