A picture is worth one thousand words, but what words should be used to describe the sentiment and emotions conveyed in the increasingly popular social multimedia? We demonstrate a novel system which combines sound structures from psychology and the folksonomy extracted from social multimedia to develop a large visual sentiment ontology consisting of 1,200 concepts and associated classifiers called SentiBank. Each concept, defined as an Adjective Noun Pair (ANP), is made of an adjective strongly indicating emotions and a noun corresponding to objects or scenes that have a reasonable prospect of automatic detection. We believe such large-scale visual classifiers offer a powerful mid-level semantic representation enabling high-level sentiment analysis of social multimedia. We demonstrate novel applications made possible by SentiBank including live sentiment prediction of social media and visualization of visual content in a rich intuitive semantic space
