Create a detector of toxicity from political tweets in Spain

:wave: Please read the topic category description to understand what this is all about


The goal of this project is to automatically identify toxic speech emitted by politicians on Twitter. It is focused on Spain which is an interesting multilingual case with several co-official languages which are used interchangeably in politics.


Multilingual models like xlm-roberta-base.


  • tweet_eval is a related resource, but it is English-only.


  • Getting high-quality data in Spanish and/or integrating data in other languages.

Desired project outcomes

  • Create a Streamlit or Gradio app on :hugs: Spaces that is able to detect toxicity from tweets.
