OpiTrack - Tracking Opinion Change Over Time
Recent years have seen the rapid growth of social media platforms that enable people to express their thoughts and opinions on the web and share them with other users. Many people write their opinion about products, movies, people or events on blogs, forums or review sites. In this project we will extend the latest models of opinion retrieval and sentiment analysis by incorporating time in the opinion analysis. We will develop models that track sentiment over time also covering different aspects of a topic. We will also develop models that will attempt to predict the sentiment change toward a topic at a certain time in future. The models developed will be evaluated with real data.
