In this work, we present a novel quantification of conflict in online discussion. Unlike previous studies on conflict dynamics, which model conflict as a binary phenomenon, our measure is continuous-valued, which we validate with manually annotated ratings. We address a two-way prediction task. Firstly, we predict the probable degree of conflict a...

... also consider ranking comments accordingly to their conflicting tendency towards a particular news article and a particular comment. We compute the Mean Average Precision (MAP) of the ranking and Mean Reciprocal Rank (MRR) for top ranking position based on the ground-truth annotation mentioned in Section 3. As observed in Table 2, measuring inter-comment conflict is rather an easier task compared to news-comment conflict. The feedback obtained from the annotators reveal that as most news articles are written in an objective style with less explicit opinion, it is hard to apprehend whether a comment holds opposite opinion to the news. ...
