University of Michigan associate professor Libbey Hemphill recently urged social media platforms to "extend beyond civility" in their hate speech moderation efforts.
In her article "To Truly Target Hate Speech, Moderation Must Extend Beyond Civility," Hemphill holds up a machine learning program she co-created as a better way to detect hate speech.
"Platforms claim content moderation at scale is too difficult and expensive," Hemphill writes, "but our team detected white supremacist speech with affordable tools available to most researchers–much less expensive than those available to platforms."
