Probabilistic Topic Models for Human Emotion Analysis

Abstract While discrete emotions like joy, anger, disgust etc. are quite popular, continuous

emotion dimensions like arousal and valence are gaining popularity within the research

community due to an increase in the availability of datasets annotated with these

emotions. Unlike the discrete emotions, continuous emotions allow modeling of subtle

and complex affect dimensions but are difficult to predict.

Dimension reduction techniques form the core of emotion recognition systems and

help create a new feature space that is more helpful in predicting emotions. But these

techniques do not necessarily guarantee a better predictive capability as most of them

are unsupervised, especially in regression learning. In emotion recognition literature,
