TAC KBP English Surprise Slot Filling -- Comprehensive Training and Evaluation Data 2010 was developed by the Linguistic Data Consortium and contains training and evaluation data produced in support of the 2013 and 2014 TAC KBP Sentiment Slot Filling tracks.

Text Analysis Conference (TAC) is a series of workshops organized by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). TAC was developed to encourage research in natural language processing and related applications by providing a large test collection, common evaluation procedures, and a forum for researchers to share their results. Through its various evaluations, the Knowledge Base Population (KBP) track of TAC encouraged the development of systems to match entities mentioned in natural texts with those appearing in a knowledge base, to extract novel information about entities from a document collection, and to add it to a new or existing knowledge base.

The regular English Slot Filling track involved mining information about entities from text using a specified set of "slots", or attributes. The goal of the Sentiment Slot Filling task was to evaluate the quality of detectors for positive and negative sentiment. More information about the TAC KBP Sentiment Slot Filling track and other TAC KBP evaluations can be found on the NIST TAC website.
