Abstract

In this paper, we propose an approach to intelligent and automatic keyword selection for the purpose of Twitter data collection and analysis. The proposed approach makes use of a combination of deep learning and evolutionary computing. As some context for application, we present the proposed algorithm using the case study of public health surveillance over Twitter, which is a field with a lot of interest. We also describe an optimization objective function particular to the keyword selection problem, as well as metrics for evaluating Twitter keywords, namely: reach and tweet retreival power, on top of traditional metrics such as precision. In our experiments, our evolutionary computing approach achieved a tweet retreival power of 0.55, compared to 0.35 achieved by the baseline human approach.
