An online sarcasm detector

Researchers have developed a program called TrueRatr that screens app reviews for signs of sarcasm in a bid to make ratings more accurate. Its makers claim the site can detect even the most subtle sarcastic comments to help users 'get insights on ratings, to get the best and worst review' before downloading the app.

To build the app, students at Cornell crowdsourced thousands of reviews through Amazon's Mechanical Turk service as part of their three-month project.

Huh. If these were those "Detect Sarcasm" hits from Subjective Language Lab, then I've done a crap ton of them.

If you're talking about this requester, I think they're probably different (there's often multiple similar-but-unrelated research projects in popular topic areas simultaneously). turkopticon : reviews about SubjectiveLanguageIncorporated (fka nlds.soe.ucsc.edu, which is UC Santa Cruz).

I think those ones asking about Amazon products in Januaty were from Cornell. The ones where it asked if there was a ton of white space on the company page and crap like that?
