We are happy to share that the training sets of the Shared Task on Aggression Identification are available. If you wish to participate, please visit the website and fill up the registration form. The test sets will be released on April 20, 2018.
The shared task is part of the 1st Workshop on Trolling, Aggression and Cyberbullying (TRAC - 1) co-located with COLING 2018 in Santa Fe, USA on 20 / 21 August, 2018.
The task is to develop systems to discriminate between ‘Overtly Aggressive’, ‘Covertly Aggressive’, and ‘Non-aggressive’ content in texts. We made available a dataset of 15,000 aggression-annotated Facebook Posts and Comments for training and validation. We will release additional data for testing your system. The dataset includes posts in English and Hindi (in both Roman and Devanagari script).
