Paper in AISTATS 2013 on “Beyond Sentiment: The Manifold of Human Emotions”


Sentiment analysis predicts the presence of positive or negative emotions in a text document. In this paper we consider higher-dimensional extensions of the sentiment concept, which represent a richer set of human emotions. Our approach goes beyond previous work in that our model contains a continuous manifold rather than a finite set of human emotions. We investigate the resulting model, compare it to psychological observations, and explore its predictive capabilities. Besides obtaining significant improvements over a baseline without manifold, we are also able to visualize different notions of positive sentiment in different domains.
