Assessing Social License to Operate from the Public Discourse on Social Media

no code implementations COLING 2020 Chang Xu, Cecile Paris, Ross Sparks, Surya Nepal, Keith VanderLinden

Our experimental results show that SIRTA is highly effective in distilling stances from social posts for SLO level assessment, and that the continuous monitoring of SLO levels afforded by SIRTA enables the early detection of critical SLO changes.

Cross-Target Stance Classification with Self-Attention Networks

1 code implementation ACL 2018 Chang Xu, Cecile Paris, Surya Nepal, Ross Sparks

In stance classification, the target on which the stance is made defines the boundary of the task, and a classifier is usually trained for prediction on the same target.
