Stance detection in online discussions

by   Peter Krejzl, et al.

This paper describes our system created to detect stance in online discussions. The goal is to identify whether the author of a comment is in favor of the given target or against. Our approach is based on a maximum entropy classifier, which uses surface-level, sentiment and domain-specific features. The system was originally developed to detect stance in English tweets. We adapted it to process Czech news commentaries.
