Outline

The power of social media has not been efficiently utilized in medical fields, though lots of tweets concerning people's health condition or diseases are shared over social media like Twitter. Several diseases such as hay fever can be observed by regarding Twitter users as social sensors and exploiting their tweets. In this study, we aim at developing a Twitter-based surveillance system for hay fever by solving spatio-temporal and semantic gaps that are important issues of social sensors.
