Software That Detects Sarcasm on Social Media

July 20, 2017

Technion-Israel Institute of Technology Faculty of Industrial Engineering and Management has developed Sarcasm SIGN, a software that can detect sarcasm in social media content. People with learning difficulties will find this tool useful.

According to an article published by Digital Journal titled Software Detects Sarcasm on Social Media:

The primary aim is to interpret sarcastic statements made on social media, be they Facebook comments, tweets or some other form of digital communication.

As we move towards a more digitized world where the majority of our communications are through digital channels, people with learning disabilities are at the receiving end. As machine learning advances so do the natural language capabilities. Tools like these will be immensely helpful for people who are unable to understand the undertones of communication.

The same tool can also be utilized by brands for determining who is talking about them in a negative way. Now ain’t that wonderful Facebook?
