21.03.2021: Internationaler Tag gegen Rassismus

Online platforms have facilitated constructive and reflective discussions on racism, but at the same time they also provide space for the aforementioned racially motivated hate speech that demeans, excludes, and harms people. “The project Counter-Bot: Artificial Intelligence (AI) combating racist hate speech online aims to support the development of AI, which can more accurately detect (illegal) racist hate,” says Barbara Liegl, head of the “(In)Equalities and Non-Discrimination” program line at the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Fundamental and Human Rights.

Our project "Counter-Bot: Artificial Intelligence combating racist hate speech online" is nominated for the MigAwards 2021 in the category "Initiative against hate"!
