Abstract

We present an overview of the 2018 ALTA shared task. This is the 9th of the series of shared tasks organised by ALTA since 2010. The task was to classify Australian patent classifications following the sections defined by the International Patient Classification (IPC), using data made available by IP Australia. We introduce the task, describe the data and present the results of the participating teams. Some of the participating teams outperformed state of the art.
