  title={Social Data Sentiment Analysis in Smart Environments - Extending Dual Polarities for Crowd Pulse Capturing},
  author={Athena Vakali and Despoina Chatzakou and Vassiliki A. Koutsonikola and George Andreadis},
Social networks drive todays opinion and content diffusion. Humans interact in social media on the basis of their emotional states and it is important to capture people emotional scales for a particular theme. Such interactions are facilitated and become evident in smart environments characterized by mobile devices and new smart city contexts. This work proposes a sentiment analysis approach which extends positive and negative polarity in higher and wider emotional scales to offer new smart…
