Towards the end of 2019, Wuhan experienced an outbreak of novel coronavirus, which soon spread worldwide, resulting in a deadly pandemic that infected millions of people around the globe. The public health agencies followed many strategies to counter the fatal virus. However, the virus severely affected the lives of the people. In this paper, we study the sentiments of people from the top five worst affected countries by the virus, namely the USA, Brazil, India, Russia, and South Africa. We propose a deep language-independent Multilevel Attention-based Conv-BiGRU network (MACBiG-Net) , which includes embedding layer, word-level encoded attention, and sentence-level encoded attention mechanisms to extract the positive, negative, and neutral sentiments. The network captures the subtle cues in a document by focusing on the local characteristics of text along with the past and future context information for the sentiment classification. We further develop a COVID-19 Sentiment Dataset by crawling the tweets from Twitter and applying topic modeling to extract the hidden thematic structure of the document. The classification results demonstrate that the proposed model achieves an accuracy of 85%, which is higher than other well-known algorithms for sentiment classification. The findings show that the topics which evoked positive sentiments were related to frontline workers, entertainment, motivation, and spending quality time with family. The negative sentiments were related to socio-economic factors like racial injustice, unemployment rates, fake news, and deaths. Finally, this study provides feedback to the government and health professionals to handle future outbreaks and highlight future research directions for scientists and researchers.

Text sentiment classification is an important technology for natural language processing. A fuzzy system is a strong tool for processing imprecise or ambiguous data, and it can be used for text sentiment analysis. This article proposes a new formulation of a multi-task Takagi-Sugeno-Kang fuzzy system (TSK FS) modeling, which can be used for text sentiment image classification. Using a novel multi-task fuzzy c-means clustering algorithm, the common (public) information among all tasks and the individual (private) information for each task are extracted. The information about clustering, for example, cluster centers, can be used to learn the antecedent parameters of multi-task TSK fuzzy systems. With the common and individual antecedent parameters obtained, a corresponding multi-task learning mechanism for learning consequent parameters is devised. Accordingly, a multi-task fuzzy clustering–based multi-task TSK fuzzy system (MTFCM-MT-TSK-FS) is proposed. When the proposed model is built, the information conveyed by the fuzzy rules formed is two-fold, including (1) common fuzzy rules representing the inter-task correlation information and (2) individual fuzzy rules depicting the independent information of each task. The experimental results on several text sentiment datasets demonstrate the validity of the proposed model.

Abstract In recent times, sentiment analysis research has gained wide popularity. That situation is caused by the nature of online applications that allow users to express their opinions on events, services, or products through social media applications such as Twitter, Facebook, and Amazon. This paper proposes a novel sentiment classification method according to the Fuzzy rule-based system (FRBS) with crow search algorithm (CSA). FRBS is used to classify the polarity of sentences or documents, and the CSA is employed to optimize the best output from the fuzzy logic algorithm. The FRBS is applied to extract the sentiment and classify its polarity into negative, neutral, and positive. Sometimes, the outputs of the FRBS must be enhanced, especially since many variables are present and the rules between them overlap. For such cases, the CSA is used to solve this limitation faced by FRBS to optimize the outputs of FRBS and achieve the best result. We compared the performance of our proposed model with different machine learning algorithms, such as SVM, maximum entropy, boosting, and SWESA. We tested our model on three famous data sets collected from Amazon, Yelp, and IMDB. Experimental results demonstrated the effectiveness of the proposed model and achieved competitive performance in terms of accuracy, recall, precision, and the F–score.

Abstract Aspect-level sentiment classification aims to integrating the context to predict the sentiment polarity of aspect-specific in a text, which has been quite useful and popular, e.g. opinion survey and products’ recommending in e-commerce. Many recent studies exploit a Long Short-Term Memory (LSTM) networks to perform aspect-level sentiment classification, but the limitation of long-term dependencies is not solved well, so that the semantic correlations between each two words of the text are ignored. In addition, traditional classification model adopts SoftMax function based on probability statistics as classifier, but ignores the words’ features in the semantic space. Support Vector Machine (SVM) can fully use the information of characteristics and it is appropriate to make classification in the high dimension space, however which just considers the maximum distance between different classes and ignores the similarities between different features of the same classes. To address these defects, we propose the two-stages novel architecture named Self Attention Networks and Adaptive SVM (SAN-ASVM) for aspect-level sentiment classification. In the first-stage, in order to overcome the long-term dependencies, Multi-Heads Self Attention (MHSA) mechanism is applied to extract the semantic relationships between each two words, furthermore 1-hop attention mechanism is designed to pay more attention on some important words related to aspect-specific. In the second-stage, ASVM is designed to substitute the SoftMax function to perform sentiment classification, which can effectively make multi-classifications in high dimensional space. Extensive experiments on SemEval2014, SemEval2016 and Twitter datasets are conducted, compared experiments prove that SAN-ASVM model can obtains better performance.
