Digital Hate: Day 2

Gendered Disinformation and Computational Propaganda in Brazil: a Permanent Campaign
Rose Marie Santini, moderated by Helena Mihaljević
It’s hard to imagine digital platforms without the use of data-driven algorithms. Although the provision of personalized recommendations for videos or tweets enables navigation through the vast expanses of the Internet, it creates bubbles and echo chambers that often particularly promote toxic content. However, algorithms are also increasingly being used in the context of content moderation to automatically detect offensive content, which in turn uses human annotation directly or indirectly.
Art makes it possible to look at things from a new perspective. Artists also intervene in discussions about data, algorithms and AI. They show how digital media, algorithms and AI can offer new possibilities for political education. The contributors talk about the interface between art, AI and political education and the potentials that accompany this specific approach.
Civil society organizations do important work to combat hate speech online. They monitor its spread and support people affected by hate speech on social media and beyond. What does this work mean? What are the specific requirements? Where is there a need for cooperation and what are the latest developments?
