  • Barbieri, Francesco; Ballesteros, Miguel; Saggion, Horacio (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2017)
    Emojis are ideograms which are naturally combined with plain text to visually complement or condense the meaning of a message. Despite being widely used in social media, their underlying semantics have received little ...

  • Barbieri, Francesco; Marujo, Luís; Karuturi, Pradeep; Brendel, William; Saggion, Horacio (CEUR Workshop Proceedings, 2018)
    The frequent use of Emojis on social media platforms has created a new form of multimodal social interaction. Developing methods for the study and representation of emoji semantics helps to improve future multimodal ...
  • Barbieri, Francesco; Kruszewski, German; Ronzano, Francesco; Saggion, Horacio (ACM Association for Computer Machinery, 2016)
    Choosing the right emoji to visually complement or con- dense the meaning of a message has become part of our daily life. Emojis are pictures, which are naturally combined with plain text, thus creating a new form of ...
  • Barbieri, Francesco; Camacho-Collados, Jose (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2018)
    In this paper we analyze the use of emojis in social media with respect to gender and skin tone. By gathering a dataset of over twenty two million tweets from United States some findings are clearly highlighted after ...

  • Barbieri, Francesco; Espinosa-Anke, Luis; Camacho-Collados, Jose; Schockaert, Steven; Saggion, Horacio (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2018)
    Human language has evolved towards newer forms of communication such as social media, where emojis (i.e., ideograms bearing a visual meaning) play a key role. While there is an increasing body of work aimed at ...
  • Barbieri, Francesco (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, 2018-01-25)
    In this dissertation we propose algorithms for the analysis of social media texts, focusing on two particular aspects: irony and emojis. We propose novel automatic systems, based on machine learning methods, able to recognize ...
  • Oramas, Sergio; Nieto Caballero, Oriol; Barbieri, Francesco; Serra, Xavier (International Society for Music Information Retrieval (ISMIR), 2017)
    Music genres allow to categorize musical items that share common characteristics. Although these categories are not mutually exclusive, most related research is traditionally focused on classifying tracks into a single ...
  • Barbieri, Francesco; Marujo, Luís; Karuturi, Pradeep; Brendel, William (CEUR Workshop Proceedings, 2018)
    Emojis are very common in social media and understanding their underlying semantics is of great interest from a Natural Language Processing point of view. In this work, we investigate emoji prediction in short ...
  • Oramas, Sergio; Barbieri, Francesco; Nieto, Oriol; Serra, Xavier (Ubiquity Press, 2018)
    Music genre labels are useful to organize songs, albums, and artists into broader groups that share similar musical characteristics. In this work, an approach to learn and combine multimodal data representations for music ...
  • Barbieri, Francesco; Ballesteros, Miguel; Ronzano, Francesco; Saggion, Horacio (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2018)
    Emojis are small images that are commonly included in social media text messages. The combination of visual and textual content in the same message builds up a modern way of communication, that automatic systems are not ...
  • Barbieri, Francesco; Espinosa-Anke, Luis; Saggion, Horacio (IOS Press, 2016)
    Abstract. Emojis are small sized images which are naturally combined with free text to visually complement or condense the meaning of a message. The set of available emojis is fixed, irrespective of a user’s location. ...
  • Barbieri, Francesco; Camacho-Collados, Jose; Ronzano, Francesco; Espinosa-Anke, Luis; Ballesteros, Miguel; Basile, Valerio; Patti, Viviana; Saggion, Horacio (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2018)
    This paper describes the results of the first shared task on Multilingual Emoji Prediction, organized as part of SemEval 2018. Given the text of a tweet, the task consists of predicting the most likely emoji to be used ...
  • Barbieri, Francesco; Espinosa-Anke, Luis; Ballesteros, Miguel; Soler Company, Juan; Saggion, Horacio (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2017)
    Videogame streaming platforms have become a paramount example of noisy usergenerated text. These are websites where gaming is broadcasted, and allows interaction with viewers via integrated chatrooms. Probably the ...
  • Barbieri, Francesco; Ronzano, Francesco; Saggion, Horacio (ELRA (European Language Resources Association), 2016)
    Emojis allow us to describe objects, situations and even feelings with small images, providing a visual and quick way to communicate. In this paper, we analyse emojis used in Twitter with distributional semantic models. ...
