Using AI to Spot Hate Speech

Using AI to Spot Hate Speech

A few years ago, researchers at the University of Sussex experimented with the use of AI and social media data to detect hate crime. The university joined a consortium with London’s police force, the Demos think tank, and software companies CASM Consulting and Palantir on the project.

“There is a vast amount of data on social media sites and in police crime databases. Much of this data comes in the form of natural language, and without the help of text analysis technology it’s difficult to translate this into useful insights,” the team said at the time.

It’s an approach that was adopted by a team from the University of Eastern Finland in a recent study that saw them develop a machine learning model to detect antisocial behavior in a piece of text.
