Distinct from the realm of perceived emotion research, induced emotion pertains to the emotional responses engendered within content consumers. This facet has garnered considerable attention and finds extensive application in the analysis of public social media. However, the advent of micro videos presents unique challenges when attempting to discern the induced emotional patterns exhibited by content consumers, owing to their free-style representation and other factors. Consequently, we have put forth two novel tasks concerning the recognition of public-induced emotion on micro videos: emotion polarity and emotion classification. Additionally, we have introduced a accessible dataset specifically tailored for the analysis of public-induced emotion on micro videos. The data corpus has been meticulously collected from Tiktok, a burgeoning social media platform renowned for its trendsetting content. To construct the dataset, we have selected eight captivating topics that elicit vibrant social discussions. In devising our label generation strategy, we have employed an automated approach characterized by the fusion of multiple expert models. This strategy incorporates a confidence measure method that relies on three distinct models for effectively aggregating user comments. To accommodate adaptable benchmark configurations, we provide both binary classification labels and probability distribution labels. The dataset encompasses a vast collection of 7,153 labeled micro videos. We have undertaken an extensive statistical analysis of the dataset to provide a comprehensive overview composition. It is our earnest aspiration that this dataset will serve as a catalyst for pioneering research avenues in the analysis of emotional patterns and the understanding of multi-modal information.
