Recognizing Mentions of Adverse Drug Reaction in Social Media Using Knowledge-Infused Recurrent Models

EACL 2017  ·  Gabriel Stanovsky, Daniel Gruhl, Pablo Mendes ·

Recognizing mentions of Adverse Drug Reactions (ADR) in social media is challenging: ADR mentions are context-dependent and include long, varied and unconventional descriptions as compared to more formal medical symptom terminology. We use the CADEC corpus to train a recurrent neural network (RNN) transducer, integrated with knowledge graph embeddings of DBpedia, and show the resulting model to be highly accurate (93.4 F1)... Furthermore, even when lacking high quality expert annotations, we show that by employing an active learning technique and using purpose built annotation tools, we can train the RNN to perform well (83.9 F1). read more
