Aspect Sentiment Model for Micro Reviews

14 Jun 2018  ·  Reinald Kim Amplayo, Seung-won Hwang ·

This paper aims at an aspect sentiment model for aspect-based sentiment analysis (ABSA) focused on micro reviews. This task is important in order to understand short reviews majority of the users write, while existing topic models are targeted for expert-level long reviews with sufficient co-occurrence patterns to observe. Current methods on aggregating micro reviews using metadata information may not be effective as well due to metadata absence, topical heterogeneity, and cold start problems. To this end, we propose a model called Micro Aspect Sentiment Model (MicroASM). MicroASM is based on the observation that short reviews 1) are viewed with sentiment-aspect word pairs as building blocks of information, and 2) can be clustered into larger reviews. When compared to the current state-of-the-art aspect sentiment models, experiments show that our model provides better performance on aspect-level tasks such as aspect term extraction and document-level tasks such as sentiment classification.
