Description

Danielle Deibler examines an approach to detecting bias, fine-grained emotional sentiment, and misinformation through the detection of political narratives in online media. As building blocks, the methodology uses human-in-the-loop, alongside other natural language processing and computational linguistics techniques, with examples focused on the 2020 US presidential election.

Danielle uses real-world examples of data-driven and active learning-derived analysis of data collected in conjunction with tracking of the 2020 US presidential election. She highlights both the successes and failures seen in over a year of work in the US political sphere. Her use cases focus on how messaging spreads, both negatively (propaganda) and positively (prodemocracy campaigns), the political bias of those on Twitter, and asymmetries in coverage of male versus female candidates.
