Automatically analysing the emotion in texts is in increasing interest in today’s research fields. The aim is to develop a machine that can detect type of user’s emotion from his/her text. Emotion classification of English texts is studied by several researchers and promising results are achieved. In this thesis, an emotion classification study on Turkish texts is introduced. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study on emotion analysis of Turkish texts. In English there exists some well-defined datasets for the purpose of emotion classification, but we could not find datasets in Turkish suitable for this study. Therefore, another important contribution is the generating a new data set in Turkish for emotion analysis. The dataset is generated by combining two types of sources. Several classification algorithms are applied on the dataset and results are compared. Due to the nature of Turkish language, new features are added to the existing methods to improve the success of the proposed method.

Sentiment analysis of Turkish political columns with transfer learning
Kaya, Mesut; Toroslu, İsmail Hakkı; Fidan, Güven; Department of Computer Engineering (2013)
Sentiment Analysis aims to determine the attitude (sense, emotion, opinion etc.) of a speaker or a writer with respect to a specified topic by automatically classifying a textual data. With the recent explosive growth of the social media content on theWeb, people post reviews of products on merchant sites and express their views about almost anything in their personal blogs, pages at social network sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Blogger. Therefore, sentiment analysis has become a major area of interest i...
Mapping Human–Computer Interaction Research Themes and Trends from Its Existence to Today: A Topic Modeling-Based Review of past 60 Years
GÜRCAN, FATİH; Cagiltay, Nergiz Ercil; Çağıltay, Kürşat (Informa UK Limited, 2020-01-01)
As it covers a wide spectrum, the research literature of human-computer interaction (HCI) studies has a rich and multi-disciplinary content where there are limited studies demonstrating the big picture of the field. Such an analysis provides researchers with a better understanding of the field, revealing current issues, challenges, and potential research gaps. This study aims to explore the research trends in the developmental stages of the HCI studies over the past 60 years. Automated text mining with prob...
Making sense of statistical and probabilistic information in the media texts Pre service teachers critical thinking processes
ÖZEN, MEHTAP; Çakıroğlu, Erdinç (2015-02-08)
This study aimed to investigate the critical thinking processes that pre-service middle school mathematics teachers utilize when they intensely engaged with the media text based on statistical and probabilistic information. Data were collected through in-depth interviews with four pre-service middle school mathematics teachers in a public university. The findings of the study pointed out that pre-service middle school mathematics teachers progressed through different critical thinking processes, including c...
Positive impact of state similarity on reinforcement learning performance
Girgin, Sertan; Polat, Faruk; Alhaj, Reda (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2007-10-01)
In this paper, we propose a novel approach to identify states with similar subpolicies and show how they can be integrated into the reinforcement learning framework to improve learning performance. The method utilizes a specialized tree structure to identify common action sequences of states, which are derived from possible optimal policies, and defines a similarity function between two states based on the number of such sequences. Using this similarity function, updates on the action-value function of a st...
Selective word encoding for effective text representation
Ozkan, Savas; Ozkan, Akin (The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey, 2019-01-01)
Determining the category of a text document from its semantic content is highly motivated in the literature and it has been extensively studied in various applications. Also, the compact representation of the text is a fundamental step in achieving precise results for the applications and the studies are generously concentrated to improve its performance. In particular, the studies which exploit the aggregation of word-level representations are the mainstream techniques used in the problem. In this paper, w...
