We present NegativeRank, a novel graph-based sentence ranking model to improve the diversity of focused summary by performing random walks over sentence graph with negative edge weights. Unlike the typical eigenvector centrality ranking, our method models the redundancy among sentence nodes as the negative edges. The negative edges can be thought of as the(More)
Sentiment analysis studies the public opinions towards an entity, and it is an important research area in data mining. Recently, a lot of sentiment analysis models have been proposed, including supervised and unsupervised approaches. However, the role of supervised models has been undermined by the phenomenon of big data, and the unsupervised ones are(More)
