Overview

Please note that the codalab scoring is not working. however, gold labels for the test set have been released. 

Hostile Post Detection in Hindi -This subtask focuses on a variety of hostile posts in Hindi Devanagari script collected from Twitter and Facebook. The set of valid categories are fake news, hate speech, offensive, defamation, and non-hostile posts. It is a multi-label multi-class classification problem where each post can belong to one or more of these hostile classes. However, the non-hostile posts cannot be grouped with any other class.
Definitions of the class labels:

  • Fake News: A claim or information that is verified to be not true.
  • Hate Speech: A post targeting a specific group of people based on their ethnicity, religious beliefs, geographical belonging, race, etc., with malicious intentions of spreading hate or encouraging violence.
  • Offensive: A post containing profanity, impolite, rude, or vulgar language to insult a targeted individual or group.
  • Defamation: A mis-information regarding an individual or group.
  • Non-hostile: A post without any hostility.


Examples

ये देखो इस्लाम क्या क्या सिखाता है जिहाद से लेकर आतंकवादी और दंगों से लेकर चोरी बुर्खे की आड़ में चद्दर चुराती महिलाएं {hate}
मोहतरमा JNU की 43 साल की छात्रा हैं , और कमाल की बात है कि उनकी बेटी मोना भी JNU में ही पड़ती है {Fake, Defamation}
जब इन दलितों को (सभी नहीं) हिन्दू धर्म और हिन्दू देवी देवताओं से इतनी नफरत भारी हुई है तो धूर्त कहीं के अपना नाम हिन्दुओं के जैसे ही क्यों रखते हैं। किसने रोका है कुछ भी बन से, बन जाओ मुस्लिम, ईसाई और जो मन करे। इस धूर्त की हिम्मत नहीं कि किसी दूसरे धर्म के बारे ऐसा बोल दे । {Hate, Offensive}

Evaluation

Official Competition Metric:The evaluation of this subtask will be two-dimensional as follows:

  1. Coarse-grained evaluation: It is a binary evaluation of hostile vs non-hostile posts. We are using weighted F1-score as evaluation metric for coarse grained hostility prediction.
  2. Fine-grained evaluation: Weighted F1-score of all four hostile-dimensions will be used to evaluate submissions for fine-grained prediction.

Additionally, we will also release the non-weighted F1 score of each hostile dimension as well.
