Automatic Identification of Filipino Metaphors using Sentence Transformers and an Automatic Definition Selector
Lorenzo Miguel L. Ocampo, Maria Art Antonette D. Clari˜no

The rise of social media has led to the widespread use of online posts as valuable data for machine learning studies. However, these studies often encounter the challenge of dealing with metaphors embedded in the text, which can introduce inconsistencies in data processing since metaphors are known to change meaning of text. This challenge is even more prominent in high context languages such as Filipino. In response to this issue, multiple novelties were introduced in this study. These novelties are the Filipino metaphor corpus, the Filipino metaphor identifier created that utilizes an automatic definition selector, and finally a modified metaphor counting method in the evaluation.

Real-time Face Mask and Face Shield Detection using Haar-cascade Classifiers
Rener James V. Ramirez, Rizza DC. Mercado

The Philippines’ Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases established protocols in accordance with the World Health Organization’s guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Most prominent of these are the different alert levels which mandated the wearing of face masks and face shields, and complying with social distancing. The study used Haar-cascade Classifiers and AdaBoost to create a program that can detect the presence of faces from a webcam video feed. The program trained three classifier models each with their own 24x24 detector window to classify faces that are not wearing a mask, wearing a mask, and wearing a shield. Performance analysis showed that the program can detect the three classifications but can also misidentify non-face objects, with the face, mask, and shield classifiers getting F1 scores of 0.64, 0.7, and 0.83 respectively, suggesting that the data sets used to train the models can be further improved.
