(op)code hackathon | ONLINE | 25 – 27 September 2020

Hate-Speech Detection Task

THE AIM IS TO BUILD A PLATFORM THAT CAN BE USED TO MONITOR AND SCORE CONVERSATIONS IN TERMS OF HATE LEVEL AND TOXICITY WITH THE FINAL SCOPE OF BEING ABLE TO HELP MODERATORS TO GIVE REAL TIME FEEDBACK TO COMMENTERS AND / OR TO ALLOW ONLINE READERS TO CONSUME ONLY RELEVANT INFORMATION.

ABOUT PROJECT

The Open Code for Hate-Free Communication (OpCode) project aims at countering online hate speech using a multidimensional approach consisting of monitoring, analysis, taking action, developing free and open software solutions for moderating user generated content, and by engaging in advocacy and network consolidation. The project also aims to consolidate the efforts of civil society organizations to participate in EC monitoring exercises and continuously monitor the Web, thus providing data as a basis for future policy. Furthermore, our goal is to provide national and European policy-makers as well as IT companies with recommendations on how to address the issue. The project will contribute to the European Commission’s recommendation on measures to effectively tackle illegal content online that highlights the necessity of cooperation and mutual exchange between tech companies and CSOs for the benefit of the public.
