VistaNet: Visual Aspect Attention Network for Multimodal Sentiment
We observe that the sentiment captured within an image may be affected by three factors: image factor, user factor, and item factor. Essentially, only the first factor had been taken into account by previous works on visual sentiment analysis. Thus, we develop item-oriented and user-oriented Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) that better capture the interaction of image features with specific expressions of users or items.
