Multimodal learning has exhibited a significant advantage in affective analysis tasks owing to the comprehensive information of various modalities, particularly the complementary information. Thus, many emerging studies focus on disentangling the modality-invariant and modality-specific representations from input data and then fusing them for prediction. However, our study shows that modality-specific representations may contain information that is irrelevant or conflicting with the tasks, which downgrades the effectiveness of learned multimodal representations. We revisit the disentanglement issue, and propose a novel triple disentanglement approach, TriDiRA, which disentangles the modality-invariant, effective modality-specific and ineffective modality-specific representations from input data. By fusing only the modality-invariant and effective modality-specific representations, TriDiRA can significantly alleviate the impact of irrelevant and conflicting information across modalities during model training. Extensive experiments conducted on four benchmark datasets demonstrate the effectiveness and generalization of our triple disentanglement, which outperforms SOTA methods.
