A Prospect on How to Find the Polarity of a Financial News by Keeping an Objective Standpoint - Position Paper

Roxana Bersan, Dimitrios Kampas, Christoph Schommer

Abstract

This position paper raises the question on how we can keep an independent standpoint regarding the finding of a polarity in a news document. As we know, an usefulness and relevance of a text news may be seen differently by a group of evaluators. The differences are depending on their interests, their knowledge, and/or their ability to understand. Recent research in literature mostly follow a top-down approach, which is either a context-based solution or a dictionary-based approach. With respect to the perspective (standpoint) of an evaluator, we therefore come up with an alternative approach, which is bottom-up and which tends to overcome the power of a single evaluator. The idea is to introduce a collection of theme-related artificial agents (financial, economic, or political, . . . ), which are able to vote. A decision regarding the polarity of a financial news bases on the interplay of a social collection of agents (a swarm), which serve and assist the artificial agents while fulfilling simple (linguistic, statistical) tasks.
