  1. Curating large and high quality datasets for studying affect is a costly and time consuming process, especially when the labels are continuous. In this paper, we examine the potential to use unlabeled public reactions in the form of textual comments to aid in classifying video affect. We examine two popular datasets used for affect recognition and mine public reactions for these videos. We learn a representation of these reactions by using the video ratings as a weakly supervised signal. We show that our model can learn a fine-grained prediction of comment affect when given a video alone. Furthermore, we demonstrate how predicting the affective properties of a comment can be a potentially useful modality to use in multimodal affect modeling.
