Polarization and Hate Speech Detection in Social Media

In the digital world, social media platforms can be used to measure society's pulse. The vast and unfiltered feed of messages shared on social media is a phenomena that now raises serious concerns, especially when these messages include racist and hate speech targeting  individuals or a community. 

In this panel, speakers will discuss their methods to address the issue of polarization and hate speech detection online using computational linguistics methods.
