These models were created for the Shared Tasks of the Social Media for Health Research and Applications Workshop at ACL 2019. For more detail on the tasks see: They were all based on first fine-tuning pre-trained language models using transfer learning methods and then training these models to perform the task at hand. For more details on the methodology please see our paper: Dirkson, A.R. & Verberne, S. Transfer Learning for Health-Related Twitter Data. Proceedings of the ACL 2019 SMM4H workshop.
