Domestic abuse and online harassment analysis during Covid-19
Red Dot Foundation
Based on initial social media and keyword searches provided by Red Dot, we built an NLP classifier model by mining thousands of multi-lingual posts from Twitter, Reddit, YouTube, and news articles as well as government reports and Google trends. The team delivered the model, a labelled dataset, and Tableau workbook.
With this additional data, Red Dot was able to file public interest litigation with the Supreme Court of India. Their case was referred to the Ministry of Home Affairs and our results formed part of the evidence base for their request to declare DV services as essential and issue guidelines.
