AI has made progress in detecting hate speech, but important and difficult technical challenges remain. Back in May 2020, Facebook AI partnered with Getty Images and DrivenData to launch the Hateful Memes Challenge, a first-of-its-kind $100K competition and data set to accelerate research on the problem of detecting hate speech that combines images and text. As part of the challenge, Facebook AI created a unique data set of 10,000+ new multimodal examples, using licensed images from Getty Images so that researchers could easily use them in their work.
More than 3,300 participants from around the world entered the Hateful Memes Challenge, and we are now sharing details on the winning entries. The top-performing teams were:
