Project Description

Summary:  View help for Summary This project aims to present a large dataset for researchers to discover public conversation on Twitter surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. As strong concerns and emotions are expressed in the publicly available tweets, we annotated seventeen latent semantic attributes for each public tweet using natural language processing techniques and machine-learning based algorithms. The latent semantic attributes include: 1) ten attributes indicating the tweet’s relevance to ten detected topics, 2) five quantitative attributes indicating the degree of intensity in the valence (i.e., unpleasantness/pleasantness) and emotional intensities across four primary emotions of fear, anger, sadness and joy, and 3) two qualitative attributes indicating the sentiment category and the most dominant emotion category, respectively.
