Applied Sciences   (No.1) 1-18   Dec 2018   [Refereed]
As a foundation and typical task in natural language processing, text classification has been widely applied in many fields. However, as the basis of text classification, most existing corpus are imbalanced and often result in the classifier tendi...

Neural Computing & Applications      Aug 2018   [Refereed]
This paper proposes a method to evaluate the degree of emotion being motivated in continuous music videos based on asymmetry index (AsI). By collecting two groups of electroencephalogram (EEG) signals from 6 channels (Fp1, Fp2, Fz and AF3, AF4, Fz...

PLoS ONE   Vol.13(No.4) 1-17   Apr 2018   [Refereed]
In this paper, we propose an emotion separated method(SeTF・IDF) to assign the emotion labels of sentences with different values, which has a better visual effect compared with the values represented by TF・IDF in the visualization of a multi-label ...
