Expectation-based sentiment analysis (finished)

We are developing in collaboration with Eurospider sentiment analysis systems for domain-specific targets in German, English and French.

Focus of the project

  • Expectation-based, target-oriented and domain-specific sentiment analysis by means of polarity composition and predicate argument structures.
  • Using NLP resources (NER, PoS tagger, parser) in German, English and French to improve sentiment analysis systems.
  • Building polarity resources for German, English and French.

SentiSpider Team:

The project was funded by the Swiss Commission for Technology and Innovation (CTI) and was running from January till December 2015.

Project results

  • Text annotations with Brat (incl. Brat visualization)
  • GATE implementation (rule-based, Jape)
  • Expectation-based Sentiment Analysis (e.g. OWL implementation)
  • Systems for German, French and English
