Opinion Mining and Viewpoint Discovery
Professor at the University of Toulouse III
This talk is about opinion mining, it will first give a brief overview of opinion mining approaches
and then it will focus on viewpoint discovery. The challenge is how to automatically discover from
opinionated texts, viewpoints and the topics (themes) that are discussed in these viewpoints. After a brief overview of this research topic, we will describe deeply our proposal, an unsupervised Topic Model designed to jointly discover these three features, namely viewpoints, topics, and opinions. The model has been first designed to discover these features from text, it has been then extended to consider social data composed of both content and social interactions to handle this task. Some new investigations in this topic will be also discussed.
