We focus our analysis on explicit features.

Extracting Features From Reviews

Which words are product features?

  • INFORMATION EXTRACTION
  • How do people talk about known product features?
  • What else do they talk about that way?
  • Learn patterns and extract more
  • Computationally expensive
  • Precise
  • FREQUENCY
  • COUNTING
  • People describe product features in reviews
  • Therefore, frequent terms likely to be product features
  • Extract frequent sequences of nouns
  • Computationally cheap
  • Imprecise
pattern based information extraction

Which words are opinion words?

  • DEPENDENCY PARSING
  • Opinion words are adjectives and adverbs
  • Likely to be opinions if amod / nsubj/advmod relationship exists to feature mention.
  • Computationally expensive
  • neg (negation) relations are easily detected
  • Precise
  • PROXIMITY
  • Opinion words are adjectives and adverbs.
  • Likely to be opinions if they occur near a feature mention
  • Computationally cheap
  • Negation is hard to detect
  • Imprecise

Estimating Product Feature Scores
  • When there are few data data points, averaging gives extreme estimates
  • Beta-binomial smoothing model.
  • Estimate “true” sentiment s for each product feature.
  • Distribution of observed adjectives is binomial on “true” sentiment.
  • Added layer for classification mistakes
