Hatebase was built to assist companies, government agencies, NGOs and research organizations moderate online conversations and potentially use hate speech as a predictor for regional violence. (Language-based classification, or symbolization, is one of a handful of quantifiable steps toward genocide.)
I'm often asked whether the world is a more hateful place today than it was yesterday. Are current levels of intolerance and xenophobia statistically meaningful – waypoints on the road to some grim Mad Max world of hypertribalism? It's a difficult question to answer without first understanding how Hatebase collects and categorizes data from public data such as social media.
