Visual and Textual Sentiment Analysis of a Microblog Using Deep Convolutional Neural Networks
AbstractSentiment analysis of online social media has attracted significant interest recently. Many studies have been performed, but most existing methods focus on either only textual content or only visual content. In this paper, we utilize deep learning models in a convolutional neural network (CNN) to analyze the sentiment in Chinese microblogs from both textual and visual content. We first train a CNN on top of pre-trained word vectors for textual sentiment analysis and employ a deep convolutional neural network (DNN) with generalized dropout for visual sentiment analysis. We then evaluate our sentiment prediction framework on a dataset collected from a famous Chinese social media network (Sina Weibo) that includes text and related images and demonstrate state-of-the-art results on this Chinese sentiment analysis benchmark.
