Humans and AI in the fight against digital hate and disinformation
In 2016, the European Commission launched the Code of Conduct together with major IT companies in an effort to respond rapidly to the proliferation of hate speech online. In this fight against online hate speech, the EU-funded AI4Dignity project will investigate the role of artificial intelligence (AI). While AI can be used to detect, decelerate and remove online extreme speech, this hinges on the quality, scope and inclusivity of training data sets. There is also a lack of procedural guidelines and frameworks. As such, the project will develop an innovative solution of collaborative bottom-up coding. It will move beyond keyword-based detection systems. The AI4Dignity solution will use a community-based classification approach that identifies fact checkers as critical human interlocutors in the fight against digital hate and disinformation.
