We investigate the efficacy of topic model based approaches to two multi-aspect sentiment analysis tasks: multi-aspect sentence labeling and multi-aspect rating prediction. For sentence labeling, we propose a weakly-supervised approach that utilizes only minimal prior knowledge -- in the form of seed words -- to enforce a direct correspondence between topics and aspects. This correspondence is used to label sentences with performance that approaches a fully supervised baseline. For multi-aspect… 

Multi-Aspect Sentiment Analysis with Latent Sentiment-Aspect Attribution

A new framework called the sentiment-aspect attribution module (SAAM), which works on top of traditional neural networks and is designed to address the problem of multi- aspect sentiment classification and sentiment regression, is introduced.

Aspect opinion expression and rating prediction via LDA–CRF hybrid

A novel LDA–CRF hybrid model which employs discriminative conditional random field component for phrase extraction, a regression component for rating prediction and a generative component for grouping aspect-specific opinion expressions into coherent topics is proposed.

Multi-Entity Aspect-Based Sentiment Analysis with Context, Entity, Aspect Memory and Dependency Information

This article defines a novel task named “Multi-Entity Aspect-Based Sentiment Analysis (ME-ABSA)”, investigates the sentiment towards entities and their related aspects, and proposes to model context, entity, and aspect memory to address the task and incorporate dependency information for further improvement.

Fine Granular Aspect Analysis using Latent Structural Models

The model is able to find informative sentences that are closely related to some respects in a review, which may be helpful for aspect-level sentiment analysis such as aspect-oriented summarization and preliminary experiments demonstrate that the model obtains promising performance.

Exploring weakly supervised latent sentiment explanations for aspect-level review analysis

A new concept for aspect-level review analysis is explored, latent sentiment explanations, which are defined as a set of informative aspect-specific sentences whose polarities are consistent with that of the review, which best represents a review in terms of both aspect and polarity.

Cross-collection Multi-aspect Sentiment Analysis

A topic refinement algorithm that enhances semantic interpretability of topics to match that of visually identifiable aspects is presented and it is shown that, with this refinement, topics elicited from cross-collection topic models align excellently with entity aspects.

An Interpretable and Uncertainty Aware Multi-Task Framework for Multi-Aspect Sentiment Analysis

An Attention-driven Keywords Ranking (AKR) method, which can automatically discover aspect keywords and aspect-level opinion keywords from the review corpus based on the attention weights, is proposed, which is significant for rating predictions by FEDAR.

This paper proposes a multi-task framework called multi-sentiment hierarchical attention network (MSHAN) that jointly performs document-level and multi-aspect sentiment classification both and shows that the proposed method outperforms previous methods.

Explaining the Stars: Weighted Multiple-Instance Learning for Aspect-Based Sentiment Analysis

A model of multiple-instance learning applied to the prediction of aspect ratings or judgments of specific properties of an item from user-contributed texts such as product reviews demonstrates interpretability and explanatory power for its predictions.

Constructing Aspect-Based Sentiment Lexicons with Topic Modeling

This work develops a modification for several popular sentiment-related LDA extensions that trains prior hyperparameters \(\beta \) for specific words, and shows how this approach leads to new aspect-specific lexicons of sentiment words based on a small set of “seed” sentiment words.



Jointly Modeling Aspects and Opinions with a MaxEnt-LDA Hybrid

This paper proposes a MaxEnt-LDA hybrid model to jointly discover both aspects and aspect-specific opinion words and shows that with a relatively small amount of training data, this model can effectively identify aspect and opinion words simultaneously.

An Unsupervised Aspect-Sentiment Model for Online Reviews

An unsuper-vised system for extracting aspects and determining sentiment in review text is presented, which is simple and flexible with regard to domain and language, and takes into account the influence of aspect on sentiment polarity.

Topic sentiment mixture: modeling facets and opinions in weblogs

The proposed Topic-Sentiment Mixture (TSM) model can reveal the latent topical facets in a Weblog collection, the subtopics in the results of an ad hoc query, and their associated sentiments and could also provide general sentiment models that are applicable to any ad hoc topics.

Joint sentiment/topic model for sentiment analysis

A novel probabilistic modeling framework based on Latent Dirichlet Allocation (LDA) is proposed, called joint sentiment/topic model (JST), which detects sentiment and topic simultaneously from text, which is fully unsupervised.

A Joint Model of Text and Aspect Ratings for Sentiment Summarization

A statistical model is proposed which is able to discover corresponding topics in text and extract textual evidence from reviews supporting each of these aspect ratings, a fundamental problem in aspect-based sentiment summarization.

Modeling online reviews with multi-grain topic models

This paper presents a novel framework for extracting ratable aspects of objects from online user reviews and argues that multi-grain models are more appropriate for this task since standard models tend to produce topics that correspond to global properties of objects rather than aspects of an object that tend to be rated by a user.

Multi-aspect opinion polling from textual reviews

An unsupervised approach to aspect-based opinion polling from raw textual reviews without explicit ratings is presented and a multi-aspect bootstrapping algorithm is proposed to learn from unlabeled data aspect-related terms of each aspect to be used for aspect identification.

Sentiment Summarization: Evaluating and Learning User Preferences

A large-scale, end-to-end human evaluation of various sentiment summarization models shows that users have a strong preference for summarizers that model sentiment over non-sentiment baselines, but have no broad overall preference between any of the sentiment-based models.

The Bag-of-Opinions Method for Review Rating Prediction from Sparse Text Patterns

Experiments show that the bag- of-opinions method outperforms prior state-of-the-art techniques for review rating prediction, and is presented as a constrained ridge regression algorithm for learning opinion scores.

Latent aspect rating analysis on review text data: a rating regression approach

Empirical experiments show that the proposed latent rating regression model can effectively solve the problem of LARA, and that the detailed analysis of opinions at the level of topical aspects enabled by the proposed model can support a wide range of application tasks, such as aspect opinion summarization, entity ranking based on aspect ratings, and analysis of reviewers rating behavior.
