This work, we used the LSI and Sprinkled LSI technique to reduce the dimension for deception detection. We make our contribution to demonstrate what LSI is capturing in latent semantic space and reveal how deceptive opinions can be recognized automatically from truthful opinions. Finally, we proposed a voting scheme which integrates different approaches to further improve the classification performance. read more
