On October 11, CRETA member Roman Klinger gave a keynote talk titled Emotion Analysis: between Academia, Industry, Linguistics, Humanities, and Computer Science at the AI2Future unconference in Zagreb, Croatia.
Emotion analysis is a obvious extension to the popular task of sentiment analysis, however, methods and applications differ. In a first part of this talk, I provide a brief overview on the psychological background on emotions and their purpose and how this leads to challenges when they are estimated from text. I highlight open research questions and possible research directions. The second part is concerned with applications in a variety of areas: What can emotion analysis contribute to the humanities, for instance literary studies? Finally, I will briefly report on use-cases for emotion analysis in a text analysis platform for direct use by customers.
The slides can be downloaded here.
CRETA will be present at the DH2016 conference with two presentations and one workshop.

Titled Automatic Emotion Detection for Quantitative Literary Studies — A case study based on Franz Kafka’s “Das Schloss” und “Amerika”, Roman Klinger, Surayya Samat Suliya and Nils Reiter present a dictionary for emotions and first experiments for the automatic detection of emotions in literary texts. The paper can be downloaded here, the dictionaries as well as the code is publicly available here.
In the paper with the title Authorship attribution of Mediaeval German Text: style and contents in Apollonius von Tyrland, Sarah Schulz, Jonas Kuhn and Nils Reiter present stylometric works on the authorship of Heinrich von Neustadt’s Apollonius von Tyrland. The paper is available here.
While digitisation efforts are still under way, the workshop From Digitization to Knowledge (of which Nils Reiter is one of the organisers) focuses on the question of what to do with the digitised artefacts, as digitised artefacts are not supposed to be the end result of our efforts. Instead, we are interested in analysing, reading or understanding them.
The workshop takes place on July 11th, starting at 9:30 am.
