A framework for aspect based sentiment analysis on turkish informal texts

The web provides a suitable media for users to share opinions on various topics, including consumer products, events or news. In most of such content, authors express different opinions on different features (i.e., aspects) of the topic. It is a common practice to express a positive opinion on one aspect and a negative opinion on another aspect within the same post. Conventional sentiment analysis methods do not capture such details, rather an overall sentiment score is generated. In aspect based sentiment analysis, the opinions expressed for each aspect are extracted separately. To this aim, basically a two-phased approach is used. The first phase is aspect extraction, which is the detection of words that correspond to aspects of the topic. Once aspects are available, the next phase is to match aspects with the sentiment words in the text. In this work, we present a framework for the aspect based sentiment analysis problem on Turkish informal texts. We particularly emphasize the following contributions: for the first phase, improvements for aspect extraction as an unsupervised method, and for the second phase, enhancements for two cases, extracting implicit aspects and detecting sentiment words whose polarity depends on the aspect. Additionally, we present a tool including the implementations of the proposed algorithms, and a GUI to visualize the analysis results. The experiments are conducted on a collection of Turkish informal texts from an online products forum.

How useful is social feedback for learning to rank YouTube videos?
CHELARU, Sergiu; Orellana-Rodriguez, Claudia; Altıngövde, İsmail Sengör (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2014-09-01)
A vast amount of social feedback expressed via ratings (i.e., likes and dislikes) and comments is available for the multimedia content shared through Web 2.0 platforms. However, the potential of such social features associated with shared content still remains unexplored in the context of information retrieval. In this paper, we first study the social features that are associated with the top-ranked videos retrieved from the YouTube video sharing site for the real user queries. Our analysis considers both r...
Metadata-based modeling of information resources on the web
Ozel, SA; Altıngövde, İsmail Sengör; Ulusoy, O; Ozsoyoglu, G; Ozsoyoglu, ZM (Wiley, 2004-01-15)
This paper deals with the problem of modeling Web information resources using expert knowledge and personalized user information for improved Web searching capabilities. We propose a "Web information space" model, which is composed of Web-based information resources (HTML/XML [Hypertext Markup Language/Extensible Markup Language] documents on the Web), expert advice repositories (domain-expert-specified meta-data for information resources), and personalized information about users (captured as user profiles...
Analyzing Implicit Aspects and Aspect Dependent Sentiment Polarity for Aspect-based Sentiment Analysis on Informal Turkish Texts
Kama, Batuhan; ÖZTÜRK, MURAT; Karagöz, Pınar; Toroslu, İsmail Hakkı; Kalender, Murat (2017-11-09)
The web provides a suitable media for users to post comments on different topics. In most of such content, authors express different opinions on different features or aspects of the topic. In aspect based sentiment analysis, it is analyzed as to for which aspect which opinion is expressed. Once aspects are available, the next important step is to match aspects with correct sentiments. In this work, we investigate enhancements for two cases in matching step: extracting implicit aspects, and sentiment words w...
Modelling Green Femtocells in Smart-grids
Al-Turjman, Fadi M. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2018-08-01)
On going demands to connect massive amounts of the heterogeneous mobile devices and data traffics make the mobile operators in desperate need to find energy-efficient solutions for coverage and real-time services. Accordingly, mobile femtocells are found to be a promising solution in the coming few decades. This paper presents energy-based analysis for mobile femtocells in Ultra-Large Scale (ULS) applications such as the smart-grid. The potential reduction of the consumed energy and service interruption due...

SİERSDORFER, Stefan; CHELARU, Sergiu; Pedro, Jose San; Altıngövde, İsmail Sengör; NEJDL, Wolfgang (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2014-06-01)
An analysis of the social video sharing platform YouTube and the news aggregator Yahoo! News reveals the presence of vast amounts of community feedback through comments for published videos and news stories, as well as through metaratings for these comments. This article presents an in-depth study of commenting and comment rating behavior on a sample of more than 10 million user comments on YouTube and Yahoo! News. In this study, comment ratings are considered first-class citizens. Their dependencies with t...
