With the availability of news content via online syndicated feeds, it is now possible to automate some aspects of this process. There is also great potential to crowdsource much of the annotation work that is required to train a machine learning system to perform sentiment scoring. We describe such a system for tracking economic sentiment in online media that has been deployed since August 2009. It uses annotations provided by a cohort of non-expert annotators to train a learning system to classify a large body of news items. We report on the design challenges addressed in managing the effort of the annotators and in making annotation an interesting experience.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||IOS Press||Copyright (published version):||2010 The authors and IOS Press||Keywords:||Sentiment analysis; Machine learning; Crowdsourcing; Social media||Subject LCSH:||Mass media criticism--Data processing
