In the absence of nonverbal cues during messaging communication, users express part of their emotions using emojis. Thus, having emojis in the vocabulary of text messaging language models can significantly improve many natural language processing (NLP) applications such as online communication analysis. On the other hand, word embedding models are usually trained on a very large corpus of text such as Wikipedia or Google News datasets that include very few samples with emojis. In this study, we…

emoji2vec: Learning Emoji Representations from their Description

It is demonstrated, for the downstream task of sentiment analysis, that emoji embeddings learned from short descriptions outperforms a skip-gram model trained on a large collection of tweets, while avoiding the need for contexts in which emoji need to appear frequently in order to estimate a representation.

Sentiment of Emojis

The first emoji sentiment lexicon is provided, called the Emoji Sentiment Ranking, and a sentiment map of the 751 most frequently used emojis is drawn, which indicates that most of the emoji are positive, especially the most popular ones.

Word-Emoji Embeddings from large scale Messaging Data reflect real-world Semantic Associations of Expressive Icons

The investigations demonstrate anecdotally that word-emoji embeddings trained on large scale messaging data can reflect real-world semantic associations and release the Jodel Emoji Embedding Dataset (JEED1488) containing 1488 emojis and theirembeddings along 300 dimensions to enable further research.

How emoji and word embedding helps to unveil emotional transitions during online messaging

This project uses Affect Control Theory (ACT) to predict emotional change during an online messaging session with a chatbot and mapped Emoji2vec embedding to the affective space to let the customer use emojis.

ABSTRACT Artificially intelligent (AI) agents increasingly occupy roles once served by humans in computer-mediated communication (CMC). Technological affordances like emoji give interactants (humans

Adapting Online Messaging Based on Emotional State

This research focuses on modeling emotional state in an online messaging session using Affect Control Theory (ACT), and how a chatbot that understands the emotional states can adapt its messages and offers.

Efficient Estimation of Word Representations in Vector Space

Two novel model architectures for computing continuous vector representations of words from very large data sets are proposed and it is shown that these vectors provide state-of-the-art performance on the authors' test set for measuring syntactic and semantic word similarities.
