Summary: To address this problem, our project aims to develop a novel framework that employs LLM (or its equivalents, e.g., BARD, LLAMA), an advanced language model, to analyze and identify medication-related trends in social media content, particularly related to medicine shortages. The proposed solution will leverage ChatGPT's ability to understand natural language, context, and sentiment, enabling the identification and extraction of relevant information from social media data.
