Opinion Mining by Generating the Summaries of Users’ Reviews

Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 154)


Opinion mining is to categorize the opinion-oriented documents into positive or negative document sets according to their polarity. Previous approaches may cause the problem of high dimensionality of the vector. This paper we applied the technique of generating the summaries of the users’ reviews to solve this problem. After making a comparison with previous approaches, we prove that the use of this method can reduce the number of vector dimensions, consistent with the performance of previous approaches.
