Abstract and Keywords
Web search has become a ubiquitous commodity for Internet users. This fact puts a large number of documents with plenty of text content at our fingertips. To make good use of this data, we need to mine web text. This triggers the two problems covered here: sentiment analysis and entity retrieval in the context of the Web. The first problem answers the question of what people think about a given product or a topic, in particular sentiment analysis in social media. The second problem addresses the issue of solving certain enquiries precisely by returning a particular object: for instance, where the next concert of my favourite band will be or who the best cooks are in a particular region. Where to find these objects and how to retrieve, rank, and display them are tasks related to the entity retrieval problem.
