Hassan Iqbal, Usman Mahmood Khan, Hassan Ali Khan, Muhammad Shahzad
2022 pre-print
To study whether the SFAs of popular email services have any biases in treating the campaign emails, we conducted a large-scale study of the campaign emails of the US elections 2020 by subscribing to a  ...  Email services use spam filtering algorithms (SFAs) to filter emails that are unwanted by the user. However, at times, the emails perceived by an SFA as unwanted may be important to the user.  ...  CONCLUDING DISCUSSION In this paper, we conducted a large-scale measurement study to examine biases in SFAs of Gmail, Outlook, and Yahoo during the 2020 US elections.  ...

Pretrained Transformers for Text Ranking: BERT and Beyond

Andrew Yates, Rodrigo Nogueira, Jimmy Lin
2021 Proceedings of the 14th ACM International Conference on Web Search and Data Mining  
The goal of text ranking is to generate an ordered list of texts retrieved from a corpus in response to a query for a particular task.  ...  Although the most common formulation of text ranking is search, instances of the task can also be found in many natural language processing applications.  ...  However, there remain many open research questions, and thus in addition to laying out the foundations of pretrained transformers for text ranking, this survey also attempts to prognosticate where the  ...
