Automatic Extraction of Medication Names in Tweets as Named Entity Recognition

30 Nov 2021  ·  Carol Anderson, Bo Liu, Anas Abidin, Hoo-chang Shin, Virginia Adams ·

Social media posts contain potentially valuable information about medical conditions and health-related behavior. Biocreative VII Task 3 focuses on mining this information by recognizing mentions of medications and dietary supplements in tweets. We approach this task by fine tuning multiple BERT-style language models to perform token-level classification, and combining them into ensembles to generate final predictions. Our best system consists of five Megatron-BERT-345M models and achieves a strict F1 score of 0.764 on unseen test data.
