Abstract

This research is based on the CLEF/eRisk 2017 pilot task which is focused on early risk detection of depression. The CLEF/eRsik 2017 dataset consists of text examples collected from messages of 887 Reddit users. The main idea of the task is to classify users into two groups: risk case of depression and non-risk case. This paper considers different feature sets for depression detection task among Reddit users by text messages processing. We examine our bag-of-words, embedding and bigram models using the CLEF/eRisk 2017 dataset and evaluate the applicability of stylometric and morphological features. We also perform a comparison of our results with the CLEF/eRisk 2017 task report.
