LMU News: Two LMU research projects awarded ERC grants

The project Respond2Hate of MCML PI Hinrich Schütze was successful

MCML PI Hinrich Schütze received a Proof of Concept Grant for his project "Respond2Hate" (Responsive classifiers against hate speech in low-resource settings).

In his project, Professor Schütze is seeking to develop a pilot browser extension that allows users to locally remove hateful content from their social media feeds themselves – including in countries with little representation in current training datasets. To this end, he will validate self-developed adaptive models, continuously enhanced by means of natural language processing and deep learning techniques, for the filtering of hate speech.
