News Sentiment

Our News Reader displays every news item with colorized and designated notation which signifies the presence of common dictionary words that might determine sentiment of a text.

We have to emphasize it here that news sentiment indications are informatory, they might not contribute to our overall sentiment indices and event detection. Different methods exist to measure the sentiment of an event or a news, these models might have different properties and might not be accurately aligned with the underleying meaning of a series of events. Different sentiment measurement methodologies might be applied such as polarity based methods, Eckman emotional cube, and so on.
