Irony detection on microposts with limited set of features

Taslioglu, Hande
Karagöz, Pınar
Detecting irony in texts attracts computer scientists' attention as a recent research problem. Automatic detection of irony on microblog texts, i.e., microposts, poses additional challenges. Microposts have limited number of characters, and generally include typing errors, therefore traditional methods of text mining cannot be applied easily. This study aims to automatically detect irony in microposts. The proposed solution is based on supervised learning through a limited set of features extracted from the text. Experimental results show the effectiveness of the approach for Turkish and English informal texts.


Success factors of software development in a distributed setting : a collective case study
Bulğurcu, Burcu; Bilgen, Semih; Department of Information Systems (2006)
This study represents an attempt to address and discuss some of the most significant questions in the research on virtual software development work today. The research is held as a collective case study, including three cases with distinctive characteristics in both the software projects investigated and the types of collaborations. The study aims to reveal the success factors in virtual work, especially on the issues of communication, coordination and collaboration, by presenting the unfavorable experience...
Smartproducts: technological applications vs user expectations
Atacan Pamir, Naz; Erbuğ, Çiğdem; Department of Industrial Design (2010)
This thesis focuses on the technological trends in smart products, and analyzes their conformity to the user expectations. The advances in computation technologies have totally revolutionized the product concept, and with the integration of microchips, software and sensors into the classical everyday objects, smart products, able to sense the context, reason about the sensed data and act according to the situation, have emerged. This new way of computing basing on the ubiquitous and calm computing visions, ...
Effective feature reduction for link prediction in location-based social networks
Bayrak, Ahmet Engin; Polat, Faruk (SAGE Publications, 2019-10-01)
In this study, we investigated feature-based approaches for improving the link prediction performance for location-based social networks (LBSNs) and analysed their performances. We developed new features based on time, common friend detail and place category information of check-in data in order to make use of information in the data which cannot be utilised by the existing features from the literature. We proposed a feature selection method to determine a feature subset that enhances the prediction perform...
Spatiotemporal data mining for situation awareness in microblogs
Özdikiş, Özer; Karagöz, Pınar; Oğuztüzün, Mehmet Halit S.; Department of Computer Engineering (2016)
Detection of real-world events using messages posted in microblogs has been the motivation of numerous recent studies. In this thesis, we study spatiotemporal data mining techniques to improve situation awareness by detecting events and estimating their locations using the content in microblogs, particularly in Twitter. We present an enhancement to the clustering techniques in the literature by measuring associations between terms in tweets in a temporal context and using these associations in a vector expa...
Exploring the relationship between web presence and web usability for universities A case study from Turkey
Peker, Serhat; Kucukozer-Cavdar, Seyma; Çağıltay, Kürşat (Emerald, 2016-01-01)
Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to statistically explore the relationship between web usability and web presence of the universities. As a case study, five Turkish universities in different rankings which were selected from Webometrics rankings were evaluated and compared.
