2016 unpublished
While users often turn to search engines to learn about health conditions, a surprising amount of health information is also shared and consumed via social media, such as public social platforms like Twitter  ...  We used a hybrid approach consisting of supervised machine learning, rule-based classifiers, and biomedical domain knowledge to facilitate the retrieval of relevant and reliable health information shared  ...  For example, OHIS may mention values in di↵erent formats, eg, 2.3 ml, 40%, 17-19, or $200 (for the cost of a drug or procedure).  ...

Content Selection for Effective Counter-Argument Generation

Christopher Hidey
In contrast, in the second approach we create a dataset and models for modifying content -- making semantic edits to a claim to have a contrasting stance.  ...  In order to encourage better discussions, it is important to promote high-quality responses and relegate low-quality ones.  ...  Using BART as a fusion component in a hybrid system allows us to generate generic phrases while also providing content via the retrieval mechanism.  ...
