Towards the Improvement of Topic Priority Assignment Using Various Topic Detection Methods for E-reputation Monitoring on Twitter

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 8455)


Topic priority assignment is defined in RepLab-2013 as labelling a topic according to its level of priority (alert, mildly important or unimportant) in order to highlight topics requiring immediate attention for online reputation monitoring. Although they are strongly linked, topic detection and priority assignment have been previously treated as separate tasks. We study the impact of integrating topic detection outputs in the process of topic priority assignment.
