When crises hit, many flog to social media to share or consume information related to the event. [] Key Method Unlike previous models, which mainly rely on the lexical representations of words in the text, the proposed model integrates an additional layer of semantics that represents the named entities in the text, into a wide and deep CNN network. Results show that the Sem-CNN model consistently outperforms the baselines which consist of statistical and non-semantic deep learning models.
Crisis Event Extraction Service (CREES) - Automatic Detection and Classification of Crisis-related Content on Social Media
TLDR
The Crisis Event Extraction Service (CREES), an open-source web API that automatically classifies posts during crisis situations, is introduced and results show that the CNN-based API results can be relied upon when dealing with specific crises with the benefits associated with the usage word embeddings.
I-AID: Identifying Actionable Information From Disaster-Related Tweets
TLDR
This paper proposes a system, dubbed I-AID, to automatically filter tweets with critical or actionable information from the enormous volume of social media data, and combines state-of-the-art approaches to process and represents textual data in order to capture its underlying semantics.
Classifying Crises-Information Relevancy with Semantics
TLDR
The impact of semantics in classifying Twitter posts across same, and different, types of crises is explored, showing that adding semantic features has no noticeable benefit over statistical features when classifying same-type crises, whereas it enhances the classifier performance by up to 7.2% when classifies information about a new type of crisis.
Classifying Crises-Information Relevancy with Semantics Conference or Workshop Item
TLDR
The impact of semantics in classifying Twitter posts across same, and different, types of crises is explored, showing that adding semantic features has no noticeable benefit over statistical features when classifying same-type crises, whereas it enhances the classifier performance by up to 7.2% when classifies information about a new type of crisis.
Multi-source Multimodal Data and Deep Learning for Disaster Response: A Systematic Review
TLDR
A systematic review of 83 articles to identify the successes, current and future challenges, and opportunities in using DL for DR tasks, centred around the components of learning, a set of aspects that govern the application of Machine learning for a given problem domain.
Cross-Lingual Classification of Crisis Data
TLDR
This paper test statistical and semantic classification approaches on cross-lingual datasets from 30 crisis events, consisting of posts written mainly in English, Spanish, and Italian, and shows that the addition of semantic features extracted from external knowledge bases improve accuracy over a purely statistical model.
A Novel Framework for Detecting Important Subevents from Crisis Events via Dynamic Semantic Graphs
TLDR
This work proposes a novel framework to extract critical sub-events from a large-scale crisis event by combining important information across relevant tweets and shows that this approach significantly outperforms event detection baselines.

TLDR
The TREC-IS results indicate that a model based on combining knowledge graphs, word embeddings and textual features outperformes classical machine learning models.
Identifying and Processing Crisis Information from Social Media
TLDR
The results obtained through various analyses in this thesis demonstrate the value of semantic enrichment of text through knowledge graphs in improving the adaptability of crisis relevancy classifiers across crisis types and languages, in comparison to statistical features as often used in much of the related work.
Few-shot tweet detection in emerging disaster events
TLDR
This work compares how few-shot approaches (matching networks and prototypical networks) perform for this task and demonstrates how a modified one-class version of prototypical models can be used for this application.
