Aspect sentiment analysis for company benefits

Talk Description:

Job seekers are very interested in the benefits a company provides. We can summarize how often benefits are mentioned in reviews about the companies, but the raw counts can be misleading—the review can be complaining about the lack of or poor quality of a benefit. This problem calls for aspect sentiment analysis—annotating the sentiment of a particular topic or aspect in a text as opposed to the sentiment of the text as a whole. We discuss the problem in detail, the initial out-sourced solution, and how we replaced this with a solution built in-house during a hackathon.
