AI4Dignity is a proof of concept project funded by the European Research Council (2020-2022). Identifying the need for a global comparative framework in AI-assisted solutions for online extreme speech, this project aims to address major challenges facing AI assisted extreme speech moderation by developing an innovative solution of collaborative, society-centric model. “AI4Dignity” moves beyond keyword-based detection systems by pioneering a community-based classification approach. It identifies fact-checkers as critical human interlocutors who can bring cultural contextualization to AI-assisted speech moderation in a meaningful and feasible manner. AI4Dignity will be a significant step towards setting procedural benchmarks to operationalize “the human in the loop” principle and bring inclusive training datasets for AI systems tackling urgent issues of digital hate and disinformation.
