Description

BI| 2021/159 This project seeks to contribute to the analysis and automatic detection of online hate speech in Portuguese, investigating the linguistic and rhetorical strategies underlying both overt and covert hatred content. Specifically, this project involves the creation of a large annotated corpus from social media, covering the Covid-19 pandemic, which will support the development of a machine learning prototype to detect hate speech, and assess its explicitness and intensity, considering the time period and geolocation data. INESC-ID aims to recruit one BI-Licenciado to work on the development of semiautomatic strategies for data collection and annotation, and on the creation of a prototype that demonstrates how the information in the annotated corpus can support hate speech detection.
