Hierarchical Neural Networks for Sequential Sentence Classification in Medical Scientific Abstracts

EMNLP 2018 Di JinPeter Szolovits

Prevalent models based on artificial neural network (ANN) for sentence classification often classify sentences in isolation without considering the context in which sentences appear. This hampers the traditional sentence classification approaches to the problem of sequential sentence classification, where structured prediction is needed for better overall classification performance...
