In a world in which millions of people express their feelings and opinions about any issue in blogs, wikis, fora, chats and social networks, the distillation of knowledge from this huge amount of unstructured information is a challenging task. In this work we build a knowledge base which merges common sense and affective knowledge and visualize it in a multi-dimensional vector space, which we call SenticSpace. In particular we blend ConceptNet and WordNet-Affect and use dimensionality reduction on the resulting knowledge base to build a 24-dimensional vector space in which different vectors represent different ways of making binary distinctions among concepts and sentiments.
