Solomon at SemEval-2020 Task 11: Ensemble Architecture for Fine-Tuned Propaganda Detection in News Articles

This paper describes our system (Solomon) details and results of participation in the SemEval 2020 Task 11 "Detection of Propaganda Techniques in News Articles"\cite{DaSanMartinoSemeval20task11}. We participated in Task "Technique Classification" (TC) which is a multi-class classification task... To address the TC task, we used RoBERTa based transformer architecture for fine-tuning on the propaganda dataset. The predictions of RoBERTa were further fine-tuned by class-dependent-minority-class classifiers. A special classifier, which employs dynamically adapted Least Common Sub-sequence algorithm, is used to adapt to the intricacies of repetition class. Compared to the other participating systems, our submission is ranked 4th on the leaderboard. read more
