A TWO-CHANNEL MODEL FOR REPRESENTATION LEARNING IN VIETNAMESE SENTIMENT CLASSIFICATION PROBLEM

Quan Hoang Nguyen, Ly Vu, Quang Uy Nguyen

Abstract


Sentiment classification (SC) aims to determine whether a document conveys a positive or negative opinion. Due to the rapid development of the digital world, SC has become an important research topic that affects many aspects of our life. In SC based on machine learning, the representation of the document strongly influences on its accuracy. Word Embedding (WE)-based techniques, i.e., Word2vec techniques, are proved to be beneficial techniques to the SC problem. However, Word2vec is often not enough to represent the semantic of documents with complex sentences of Vietnamese. In this paper, we propose a new representation learning model called a \textbf{two-channel vector} to learn a higher-level feature of a document in SC. Our model uses two neural networks to learn the semantic feature, i.e., Word2vec and the syntactic feature, i.e., Part of Speech tag (POS). Two features are then combined and input to a \textit{Softmax} function to make the final classification. We carry out intensive experiments on $4$ recent Vietnamese sentiment datasets to evaluate the performance of the proposed architecture. The experimental results demonstrate that the proposed model can significantly enhance the accuracy of SC problems compared to two single models and a state-of-the-art ensemble method.
