Enhancing emotion detection with synergistic combination of word embeddings and convolutional neural networks

Anil Kumar Jadon, Suresh Kumar


Recognizing emotions in textual data is crucial in a wide range of natural language processing (NLP) applications, from consumer sentiment research to mental health evaluation. The word embedding techniques play a pivotal role in text processing. In this paper, the performance of several well-known word embedding methods is evaluated in the context of emotion recognition. The classification of emotions is further enhanced using a convolutional neural network (CNN) model because of its propensity to capture local patterns and its recent triumphs in text-related tasks. The integration of CNN with word embedding techniques introduced an additional layer to the landscape of emotion detection from text. The synergy between word embedding techniques and CNN harnesses the strengths of both approaches. CNNs extract local patterns and features from sequential data, making them well-suited for capturing relevant information within the embeddings. The results obtained with various embeddings highlight the significance of choosing synergistic combinations for optimum performance. The combination of CNNs and word embeddings proved a versatile and effective approach.
