Even though sentiment analysis has been well-studied on a wide range of domains, there hasn’tbeen much work on inferring author sentiment in news articles. To address this gap, we introducePerSenT, a crowd-sourced dataset that captures the sentiment of an author towards the mainentity in a news article. Our benchmarks of multiple strong baselines show that this is a difficultclassification task. BERT performs the best amongst the baselines. However, it only achievesa modest performance overall… Expand

TellMeWhy: A Dataset for Answering Why-Questions in Narratives
This work introduces TellMeWhy, a new crowd-sourced dataset that consists of more than 30k questions and free-form answers concerning why characters in short narratives perform the actions described, and shows that state-of-the-art models are far below human performance on answering such questions.

On Positivity Bias in Negative Reviews
It is shown that English negative reviews tend to contain more positive words than negative words, using a variety of datasets, and that negations are commonly associated with positive words in negative reviews. Expand

This work uses a natural language processing approach to propose a new real estate investment model based on online textual information and applies a transfer learning approach based on multiple online resources to recognize the house as valuable rental property in the real estate market. Expand
Classifying Mobile Applications Using Word Embeddings
Modern application stores enable developers to classify their apps by choosing from a set of generic categories, or genres, such as health, games, and music. These categories are typically static—newExpand


Document-level Sentiment Inference with Social, Faction, and Discourse Context
An ILP is introduced that jointly models sentenceand discourse-level sentiment cues, factual evidence about entity factions, and global constraints based on social science theories such as homophily, social balance, and reciprocity, which allows for rich inference across groups of entities. Expand
Sentiment Analysis in the News
This work distinguishes three different possible views on newspaper articles ― author, reader and text, which have to be addressed differently at the time of analysing sentiment, and presents work on mining opinions about entities in English language news. Expand
Recurrent Attention Network on Memory for Aspect Sentiment Analysis
We propose a novel framework based on neural networks to identify the sentiment of opinion targets in a comment/review. Our framework adopts multiple-attention mechanism to capture sentiment featuresExpand
Survey on Aspect-Level Sentiment Analysis
An in-depth overview of the current state-of-the-art of aspect-level sentiment analysis is given, showing the tremendous progress that has been made in finding both the target, which can be an entity as such, or some aspect of it, and the corresponding sentiment. Expand
Large-Scale Sentiment Analysis for News and Blogs (system demonstration)
A system that assigns scores indicating positive or negative opinion to each distinct entity in the text corpus, consisting of a sentiment identication phase, and a sentiment aggregation and scoring phase, which scores each entity relative to others in the same class. Expand
Twitter as a Corpus for Sentiment Analysis and Opinion Mining
This paper shows how to automatically collect a corpus for sentiment analysis and opinion mining purposes and builds a sentiment classifier, that is able to determine positive, negative and neutral sentiments for a document. Expand
Sentiment analysis using product review data
A general process for sentiment polarity categorization is proposed with detailed process descriptions and insight into the future work on sentiment analysis is given. Expand
Targeted Aspect-Based Sentiment Analysis via Embedding Commonsense Knowledge into an Attentive LSTM
A novel solution to targeted aspect-based sentiment analysis, which tackles the challenges of both aspect- based sentiment analysis and targeted sentiment analysis by exploiting commonsense knowledge by augmenting the LSTM network with a hierarchical attention mechanism. Expand
Multi-view Models for Political Ideology Detection of News Articles
This model draws on advances in representation learning in natural language processing and network science to capture cues from both textual content and the network structure of news articles to identify the ideology evinced by a news article. Expand
Semi-Supervised Recursive Autoencoders for Predicting Sentiment Distributions
A novel machine learning framework based on recursive autoencoders for sentence-level prediction of sentiment label distributions that outperform other state-of-the-art approaches on commonly used datasets, without using any pre-defined sentiment lexica or polarity shifting rules. Expand
