eRisk 2023: Depression, Pathological Gambling, and Eating Disorder Challenges

In 2017, we launched eRisk as a CLEF Lab to encourage research on early risk detection on the Internet. Since then, thanks to the participants’ work, we have developed detection models and datasets for depression, anorexia, pathological gambling and self-harm. In 2023, it will be the seventh edition of the lab, where we will present a new type of task on sentence ranking for depression symptoms. This paper outlines the work that we have done to date, discusses key lessons learned in previous editions, and presents our plans for eRisk 2023
