Frame Semantics Evolutionary Model for Emotion Detection

Mohamed H. Haggag


Emotions play a significant role in identifying attitude, state, condition or mode of a particular circumstance. Textual data, in particular, involves emotional state and affective communication beside its informative contents. Emotion extraction from text has been potentially studied to stimulate and elicit articulation features. In this study, a machine learning emotion detection model is proposed for textual emotion recognition. A frame semantics approach is identified to extract knowledge from the text in an evolutionary process that improves the detection capabilities. Emotion detection process is controlled by a rule base; each of its entries is generated by pre-invoking event, action and resulting emotion state. Frame entities semantically collaborated to evaluate the frame emotion. Individual entities may arbitrary substituted by their synonyms or opposites if a candidate frame doesn’t match any of the knowledge set. The proposed model proves considerable capability of recognizing emotions by referencing their semantic relations. Results showed better detection accuracy for the proposed model compared with variety of emotion approaches including keyword spotting, knowledge-based ANN and supervised machine learning models. Experiments indicated encouraging results over both binary emotion and multiple labels classifiers.
