Bias Against Asians, Black People, Jews, Hispanics/Latinx, and Muslims on Social Media: Datathon Competition for High School and Undergraduate Students
Want to learn about online hate speech and how to detect and combat it using Machine Learning?
In these workshops, led by IU professors, participants will learn how to recognize, monitor, and track biased messages on social media (specifically Twitter). Participants will be placed into teams and asked to work together on their own scripts and annotations. The three workshops will be:
1: What is hate speech online? What are manifestations of bias against Asians, black people, Hispanics, Jews, and Muslims? What is Machine Learning? Why do we need Machine Learning to observe and combat hate speech?
2: Why do we need manually labeled datasets? How to annotate Tweets?
3: How to use Machine Learning to work with an annotated corpus?
