In this course, we will cover selected topics in sentiment analysis ranging from subjectivity detection, polarity classification, opinion holder/target extraction, opinion spam classification to irony detection. Most papers that are going to be presented by the students will have a linguistic focus. Some basic understanding of machine learning (in the scope of "Mathematische Grundlagen III") would be helpful.
