Abstract: Nowadays, research that uses social media has become active. In particular, many studies have attempted to use social media as a sensor, because it generates information in real time, covering topics ranging from daily life to social issues such as disasters. In the area of public health, social media is also being used as a sensor for infectious disease surveillance. However, there are a number of challenges including the need to process efficiently large amounts of social media contents in real time and to detect diseases accurately. We have developed a system that detects disease in real-time and analyses using social media contents. We have built a workflow that enables real-time processing and developing a model managing data and detecting disease accurately. The system also provides useful information by analysing opinions and visualising information in real time. We have verified the effectiveness of the system.
