CAS: Counterathon - Collaborative Al Tackles Hate

Opening hours / Beginning:

26 July 2021 - 27 July 2021

The Center for Advanced Studies at LMU provides a forum for scientific exchange and discussion that bridges the divide between the established disciplines. Its activities are designed to promote all forms of collaborative research and to stimulate interdisciplinary communication within the University. In addition, it facilitates the integration of visiting scholars and scientists into the academic life of the University.

Counterathon is the flagship event of the project “AI4Dignity”, which is funded by the European Research Council. In the course of the two­-day closed workshop, fact-checkers from selected countries around the world will enter into an assisted dialogue with AI developers and academic experts to improve machine-learning models for online extreme speech moderation. The project takes up the challenge of operationalizing an open, nuanced, and decentralized ecosystem to combat hate.

A Workshop led by Prof. Dr. Sahana Udupa (CAS Young Center/LMU).

The event will be conducted in English. For further information, see the CAS website.
