5 Things You Need to Know about Sentiment Analysis and Classification


In the last years, Sentiment Analysis has become a hot-trend topic of scientific and market research in the field of Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Machine Learning. Below, you can find 5 useful things you need to know about Sentiment Analysis that are connected to Social Media, Datasets, Machine Learning, Visualizations, and Evaluation Methods applied by researchers and market experts. Sentiment Analysis examines the problem of studying texts, like posts and reviews, uploaded by users on microblogging platforms, forums, and electronic businesses, regarding the opinions they have about a product, service, event, person or idea. The most common use of Sentiment Analysis is this of classifying a text to a class. Depending on the dataset and the reason, Sentiment Classification can be binary (positive or negative) or multi-class (3 or more classes) problem.

Neural Learning for Aspect Phrase Extraction and Classification in Sentiment Analysis

AAAI Conferences

In this study, we present an approach and a dataset for aspect-based sentiment analysis, showing how we extract and classify aspect phrases. The research field of aspect-based sentiment analysis aims at finding opinions expressed for individual characteristics of products or services in natural language texts. In the literature, reviews for common products or services such as smartphones or restaurants were mostly investigated. We describe our newly annotated dataset of German physician reviews, which presents a sensitive and linguistically complex domain, taking care to describe the annotation process and the functionality of our neural network approach. Finally, we introduce a model that can extract and classify aspect phrases in one step while obtaining an F1 score of 80%. As we employ our algorithm in a more complex domain, we believe that our study outperforms other studies.

Sentiment Analysis: Types, Tools, and Use Cases


What do you do before purchasing something that costs more than a pack of gum? Whether you want to treat yourself to new sneakers, a laptop, or an overseas tour, processing an order without checking out similar products or offers and reading reviews doesn't make much sense anymore. Thanks to comment sections on eCommerce sites, social nets, review platforms, or dedicated forums, you can learn a ton about a product or service and evaluate whether it's a good value for money. Other customers, including your potential clients, will do all the above. People's desire to engage with businesses and the overall brand perception depends heavily on public opinion.

5 Essential Papers on Sentiment Analysis Lionbridge AI


From virtual assistants to content moderation, sentiment analysis has a wide range of use cases. AI models that can recognize emotion and opinion have a myriad of applications in numerous industries. Therefore, there is a large growing interest in the creation of emotionally intelligent machines. The same can be said for the research being done in natural language processing (NLP). To highlight some of the work being done in the field, below are five essential papers on sentiment analysis and sentiment classification.

Explainable Sentence-Level Sentiment Analysis for Amazon Product Reviews Artificial Intelligence

In this paper, we conduct a sentence level sentiment analysis on the product reviews from Amazon and thorough analysis on the model interpretability. For the sentiment analysis task, we use the BiLSTM model with attention mechanism. For the study of interpretability, we consider the attention weights distribution of single sentence and the attention weights of main aspect terms. The model has an accuracy of up to 0.96. And we find that the aspect terms have the same or even more attention weights than the sentimental words in sentences.
