The paper, Emotion Intensities in Tweets, authored by Saif M. Mohammad and Felipe Bravo-Marquez, talks about how they went about creating the data and building their system on Weka. Two key things came out of reading this paper.
- I was able to think about potentially creating my own data
- I now know which filters were used by them to create the model
It would be interesting to gather data in the same way they did. While it may not be as big of a research application, it would be an interesting thing to learn for future projects (the use of best-worst scaling, etc.).
More importantly, now that I know the filters they used for their model, I can recreate it in Weka to have a baseline system to test against when building my own regression model and Deep Learning model
