Abstract: Sentiment analysis is an established field with a wealth of prior work and many new and interesting lines of research. During my summer at APL and continuing into the semester I've investigate a host of applicable new techniques: I've explored the theory that sentiment is a relationship between two entities (held by one about the other), novel featurizations of the data, and ways to bootstrap training data to improve results. Come find out what worked, and what did not.
