Natural Language Processing applications often require large amounts of annotated training data, which are expensive to obtain. In this paper we investigate the applicability of Co-training to train classifiers that predict emotions in spoken dialogues. In order to do so, we have first applied the wrapper approach with Forward Selection and Naïve Bayes, to reduce the dimensionality of our feature set. Our results show that Co-training can be highly effective when a good set of features are chosen.
