Harmful Speech Workshop: At the Intersection of Algorithms and Human Behaviour

This workshop will broadly explore harmful speech online as it is affected by the intersection of algorithms and humans, and to create networks and relationships among stakeholders at this nexus. Findings from the sessions will help shape outputs for the event, which could include various written pieces, mechanisms for network building and continued knowledge sharing across sectors, and avenues for future collaboration amongst attendees.

Event programme:

  • Session One: Understanding the interplay between algorithms and human behaviour
  • Session Two: Different approaches, operational barriers, and ethical issues to identifying and countering harmful speech online
  • Session Three: Pathways forward

Organised by:
