Detecting and Tracking Emotion Expressions in Comparative Opinions
Dewi Varathan Kasturi
This project aims at advancing research on opinion mining by looking at sentences expressing comparative opinions. The project objectives are: 1) develop a model for identifying comparative opinions; 2) implement a demonstration system of the above model in a realistic application scenario; 3) develop a proper evaluation framework for detecting and tracking emotion expressions implying comparative opinions over time; 4) finally, evaluate the proposed models with the evaluation framework developed in point 3. This will involve a close collaboration between the two teams of USI (Prof. Fabio Crestani) and the University of Malaya (Dr. Kasturi Dewi Varathan).
