Stop raging against the machines : Building a citizen linguist lab that detects hate speech

None
Hate speech(HS) is a human problem, which will always require human engagement to teach machines its relevance. It's also a very context-dependent phenomenon, making it imperative for us to engage with relevant experts across different regional and cultural contexts. How can we collaborate sustainably to keep pace with the constantly evolving nature of online HS? Can the monitoring of online HS meaningfully support offline efforts to prevent violence and build societal cohesion? The Sentinel Project's Hatesbase is the world’s largest structured repository of regionalized, multilingual HS. The session will introduce participants to our Citizen Linguist Lab. The aim is to inspire the participants in crowdsourcing their inputs that have appropriate linguistic, cultural, and contextual knowledge. Engaging participants across all generations is vital to understand the different lived experiences and perceptions of hate speech. One doesn't have to be a professional linguist to contribute.
