Aspect-category sentiment analysis (ACSA) aims to predict sentiment polarities of sentences with respect to given aspect categories. To detect the sentiment toward a particular aspect category in a sentence, most previous methods first generate an aspect category-specific sentence representation for the aspect category, then predict the sentiment polarity based on the representation. These methods ignore the fact that the sentiment of an aspect category mentioned in a sentence is an aggregation…

Few-Shot Aspect Category Sentiment Analysis via Meta-Learning

A novel Aspect-Focused Meta-Learning (AFML) framework, which constructs aspect-aware and aspect-contrastive representations from external knowledge to match the target aspect with aspects in the training set, and employs the episode-based meta-learning algorithm to train the whole network, so as to learn to generalize to novel aspects.
