COMMUNICATION ABOUT THE PROJECT PLAY YOUR ROLE PRESENTED AT ARTSIT2021 INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE IS NOW AVAILABLE ONLINE
The communication “Takling online hate speech”, presented at the 10th EAI International Conference: ArtsIT, Interactivity & Game Creation, on the 2nd December 2021, by Susana Costa (one of the Play Your Role project researchers and a PhD student in Digital Media-Art), is now available on CIAC’s Youtube channel.
The article, co-authored by CIAC coordinators Mirian Tavares and Bruno Mendes da Silva, analyzes methods to combat online hate speech through gamification and video games. Starting from the project “Play Your Role: Gamification Against Hate Speech”, a set of complementary and interrelated tools (such as online video games, fuzzy games and pedagogical itineraries) to neutralize hate speech online is presented.
ArtsIT has been taking a leading role as a scientific forum for the dissemination of research results at the intersection of art, science, culture, performing arts, media and technology. The 2021 edition brought together researchers, practitioners, artists and academia to discuss the symbiosis between art and information technology and reflect on the impact of art and technology on sustainability, responsibility and human dignity.
