Ensemble of Generative and Discriminative Techniques for Sentiment Analysis of Movie Reviews

ICLR workshop 2015


Sentiment analysis is a common task in natural language processing that aims to detect polarity of a text document (typically a consumer review). In the simplest settings, we discriminate only between positive and negative sentiment, turning the task into a standard binary classification problem. We compare several machine learning approaches to this problem, and combine them to achieve a new state of the art. We show how to use for this task the standard generative language models, which are slightly complementary to the state of the art techniques. We achieve strong results on a well-known dataset of IMDB movie reviews. Our results are easily reproducible, as we publish also the code needed to repeat the experiments. This should simplify further advance of the state of the art, as other researchers can combine their techniques with ours with little effort.
