Workshop on Deception Detection @ Conference of the European Association for Computational Linguistics (EACL 2012) | Avignon, France | April 23, 2012
In this study, we explore several popular techniques for obtaining corpora for deception research. Through a survey of traditional as well as non-gold standard creation approaches, we identify advantages and limitations of these techniques for webbased deception detection and offer crowdsourcing as a novel avenue toward achieving a gold standard corpus. Through an indepth case study of online hotel reviews, we demonstrate the implementation of this crowdsourcing technique and illustrate its applicability to a broad array of online reviews.
