We’ve built and are now sharing a data set designed specifically to help AI researchers develop new systems to identify multimodal hate speech. This content combines different modalities, such as text and images, making it difficult for machines to understand. The Hateful Memes data set contains 10,000+ new multimodal examples created by Facebook AI. We licensed images from Getty Images so that researchers can use the data set to support their work. We are also releasing the code for baseline-trained models. We are also launching the Hateful Memes Challenge, a first-of-its-kind online competition hosted by DrivenData with a $100,000 total prize pool. The challenge has been accepted as part of the NeurIPS 2020 competition track.
