The CL-Aff HappyDB dataset: in Pursuit of Happiness

It has long been known that human affect is context-driven, and that labeled datasets should account for these factors in generating predictive models of affect. This motivates our Shared Task, which is organized in collaboration with researchers at Megagon Labs and is built upon the HappyDB dataset, comprising human accounts of `happy moments’.

I’ll add the proceedings papers, and the link to the accepted ICWSM paper here.
