Detoxing Democracy: Lessons from the SAMbot Project
November 23rd, 5pm PT- Free webinar
Toxicity in digital political spaces is hindering representation and participation in our democracy. It affects not only who enters politics but also who stays. In this presentation, Sabreena Delhon, Executive Director of the Samara Centre for Democracy, will share findings from the SAMbot project, which used AI to track toxicity received on Twitter by candidates and political party leaders during the recent Canadian federal election. Over the course of five weeks, SAMbot analyzed two million tweets. What do the results illuminate about barriers to civic engagement in our society and ways to make politics more accessible, responsive, and inclusive?
