Sentiment Analysis for YouTube Comments in Roman Urdu

Feb 19, 2021
Tooba Tehreem

Sentiment analysis is a vast area in the Machine learning domain. A lot of work is done on datasets and their analysis of the English Language. In Pakistan, a huge amount of data is in roman Urdu language, it is scattered all over the social sites including Twitter, YouTube, Facebook and similar applications. In this study the focus domain of dataset gathering is YouTube comments. The Dataset contains the comments of people over different Pakistani dramas and TV shows. The Dataset contains multi-class classification that is grouped The comments into positive, negative and neutral sentiment. In this Study comparative analysis is done for five supervised learning Algorithms including linear regression, SVM, KNN, Multi layer Perceptron and Na\"ive Bayes classifier. Accuracy, recall, precision and F-measure are used for measuring performance. Results show that accuracy of SVM is 64 percent, which is better than the rest of the list.

The rise of social media is enabling people to freely express their opinions about products and services. The aim of sentiment analysis is to automatically determine subject's sentiment (e.g., positive, negative, or neutral) towards a particular aspect such as topic, product, movie, news etc. Deep learning has recently emerged as a powerful machine learning technique to tackle a growing demand of accurate sentiment analysis. However, limited work has been conducted to apply deep learning algorithms to languages other than English, such as Persian. In this work, two deep learning models (deep autoencoders and deep convolutional neural networks (CNNs)) are developed and applied to a novel Persian movie reviews dataset. The proposed deep learning models are analyzed and compared with the state-of-the-art shallow multilayer perceptron (MLP) based machine learning model. Simulation results demonstrate the enhanced performance of deep learning over state-of-the-art MLP.

Leveraging Sentiment Analysis Knowledge to Solve Emotion Detection Tasks

Identifying and understanding underlying sentiment or emotions in text is a key component of multiple natural language processing applications. While simple polarity sentiment analysis is a well-studied subject, fewer advances have been made in identifying more complex, finer-grained emotions using only textual data. In this paper, we present a Transformer-based model with a Fusion of Adapter layers which leverages knowledge from more simple sentiment analysis tasks to improve the emotion detection task on large scale dataset, such as CMU-MOSEI, using the textual modality only. Results show that our proposed method is competitive with other approaches. We obtained state-of-the-art results for emotion recognition on CMU-MOSEI even while using only the textual modality.


Sentiment Analysis on Social Media Content

Nowadays, people from all around the world use social media sites to share information. Twitter for example is a platform in which users send, read posts known as tweets and interact with different communities. Users share their daily lives, post their opinions on everything such as brands and places. Companies can benefit from this massive platform by collecting data related to opinions on them. The aim of this paper is to present a model that can perform sentiment analysis of real data collected from Twitter. Data in Twitter is highly unstructured which makes it difficult to analyze. However, our proposed model is different from prior work in this field because it combined the use of supervised and unsupervised machine learning algorithms. The process of performing sentiment analysis as follows: Tweet extracted directly from Twitter API, then cleaning and discovery of data performed. After that the data were fed into several models for the purpose of training. Each tweet extracted classified based on its sentiment whether it is a positive, negative or neutral. Data were collected on two subjects McDonalds and KFC to show which restaurant has more popularity. Different machine learning algorithms were used. The result from these models were tested using various testing metrics like cross validation and f-score. Moreover, our model demonstrates strong performance on mining texts extracted directly from Twitter.


Data Selection Strategies for Multi-Domain Sentiment Analysis

Domain adaptation is important in sentiment analysis as sentiment-indicating words vary between domains. Recently, multi-domain adaptation has become more pervasive, but existing approaches train on all available source domains including dissimilar ones. However, the selection of appropriate training data is as important as the choice of algorithm. We undertake -- to our knowledge for the first time -- an extensive study of domain similarity metrics in the context of sentiment analysis and propose novel representations, metrics, and a new scope for data selection. We evaluate the proposed methods on two large-scale multi-domain adaptation settings on tweets and reviews and demonstrate that they consistently outperform strong random and balanced baselines, while our proposed selection strategy outperforms instance-level selection and yields the best score on a large reviews corpus.

Developing a concept-level knowledge base for sentiment analysis in Singlish

Jul 14, 2017
Rajiv Bajpai, Soujanya Poria, Danyun Ho, Erik Cambria

In this paper, we present Singlish sentiment lexicon, a concept-level knowledge base for sentiment analysis that associates multiword expressions to a set of emotion labels and a polarity value. Unlike many other sentiment analysis resources, this lexicon is not built by manually labeling pieces of knowledge coming from general NLP resources such as WordNet or DBPedia. Instead, it is automatically constructed by applying graph-mining and multi-dimensional scaling techniques on the affective common-sense knowledge collected from three different sources. This knowledge is represented redundantly at three levels: semantic network, matrix, and vector space. Subsequently, the concepts are labeled by emotions and polarity through the ensemble application of spreading activation, neural networks and an emotion categorization model.

Investigating the Effect of Segmentation Methods on Neural Model based Sentiment Analysis on Informal Short Texts in Turkish

Feb 18, 2019
Fatih Kurt, Dilek Kisa, Pinar Karagoz

This work investigates segmentation approaches for sentiment analysis on informal short texts in Turkish. The two building blocks of the proposed work are segmentation and deep neural network model. Segmentation focuses on preprocessing of text with different methods. These methods are grouped in four: morphological, sub-word, tokenization, and hybrid approaches. We analyzed several variants for each of these four methods. The second stage focuses on evaluation of the neural model for sentiment analysis. The performance of each segmentation method is evaluated under Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) and Recurrent Neural Network (RNN) model proposed in the literature for sentiment classification.

TransModality: An End2End Fusion Method with Transformer for Multimodal Sentiment Analysis

Sep 28, 2020
Zilong Wang, Zhaohong Wan, Xiaojun Wan

Multimodal sentiment analysis is an important research area that predicts speaker's sentiment tendency through features extracted from textual, visual and acoustic modalities. The central challenge is the fusion method of the multimodal information. A variety of fusion methods have been proposed, but few of them adopt end-to-end translation models to mine the subtle correlation between modalities. Enlightened by recent success of Transformer in the area of machine translation, we propose a new fusion method, TransModality, to address the task of multimodal sentiment analysis. We assume that translation between modalities contributes to a better joint representation of speaker's utterance. With Transformer, the learned features embody the information both from the source modality and the target modality. We validate our model on multiple multimodal datasets: CMU-MOSI, MELD, IEMOCAP. The experiments show that our proposed method achieves the state-of-the-art performance.
