Overview of the 2019 ALTA Shared Task: Sarcasm Target Identification

Diego Molla, Aditya Joshi


Abstract
We present an overview of the 2019 ALTA shared task. This is the 10th of the series of shared tasks organised by ALTA since 2010. The task was to detect the target of sarcastic comments posted on social media. We intro- duce the task, describe the data and present the results of baselines and participants. This year’s shared task was particularly challenging and no participating systems improved the re- sults of our baseline.
