Fleischmann, Kenneth R., Templeton, Thomas Clay and Boyd-Graber, Jordan (2011): Modeling diverse standpoints in text classification: learning to be human by modeling human values. In: Proceedings of the 2011 iConference 2011. pp. 672-673. http://dx.doi.org/10.1145/1940761.1940863

An annotator's classification of a text not only tells us something about the intent of the text's author, it also tells us something about the annotator's standpoint. To understand authorial intent, we can consider all of these diverse standpoints, as well as the extent to which the annotators' standpoints affect their perceptions of authorial intent. To model human behavior, it is important to model humans' unique standpoints. Human values play an especially important role in determining human behavior and how people perceive the world around them, so any effort to model human behavior and perception can benefit from an effort to understand and model human values. Instead of training humans to obscure their standpoints and act like computers, we should teach computers to have standpoints of their own.

Templeton, Thomas Clay, Fleischmann, Kenneth R. and Boyd-Graber, Jordan (2011): Comparing values and sentiment using Mechanical Turk. In: Proceedings of the 2011 iConference 2011. pp. 783-784. http://dx.doi.org/10.1145/1940761.1940903

Human values can help to explain people's sentiment toward current events. In this experiment, we compare people's values with their agreement or disagreement with paragraphs that were classified as either supporting or opposing a specific topic. We found that five value types have statistically significant agreement (p<0.001) for both the supporting and opposing paragraphs, in opposite directions. We hope to use these paragraph ratings to train an automatic text classifier to agree or disagree with paragraphs based on a specific value profile.
