What was the paper about?
This talk is about the use of deep neural networks, or more specifically Recursive Neural Tensor Networks (RNTN)2)http://deeplearning4j.org/recursiveneuraltensornetwork.html for sentiment analysis.
RNTNs have a tree structure with a neural net at each node which determine which word groups are positive and which are negative. This sentiment for each word, and how it is modified by other words within the sentence hierarchy can then be used to infer the overall sentence sentiment.
There is also some discussion in the video about detecting sarcasm.
The same sentence can be either positive or sarcastic. For example, "I love doing taxes" could be sarcastic, or for a tax accountant, could be positive. In order to understand the difference additional context around the statement is required as well as potentially information about its user.
A large challenge in developing good sarcastic models is the lack of an extensive data set from which to train a model.
