Proceedings of the GermEval 2021 Shared Task on the Identification of Toxic, Engaging, and Fact-Claiming Comments

We describe our participation in all the subtasks of the Germeval 2021 shared task on the identification of Toxic, Engaging, and Fact-Claiming Comments. Our system is an ensemble of state-of-the-art pre-trained models finetuned with carefully engineered features. We show that feature engineering and data augmentation can be helpful when the training data is sparse. We achieve an F1 score of 66.87, 68.93, and 73.91 in Toxic, Engaging, and Fact-Claiming comment identification subtasks.
