Working toward that direction will make the domain popular and many open-sourced solutions can be generated. Early identification of propaganda is crucial to start fighting the manipulation spread in news and test hypothesis such as which news sources are biased and propagandistic. It will also benefit the individual user who will be able to check the integrity of news sources.

This motivated us to organize a “Hack the News” Datathon, a Data Science Hackathon open to the global community.

Data Enthusiasts and Experts in the area of text-mining and NLP are challenged to develop a machine learning model for identifying propaganda using their preferred data analysis methods and tools and following cutting-edge methodology.

We believe that having fun all together solving such a problem is something we need to focus on.

The Data Science Hackathon is open for the global community to participate from all around the world virtually.

However, there are several physical Datathon hosts. Keep an eye for their local schedules and logistics information.

Local Host in Sofia: SofiaLab (Serdika, 1), Official Opening starts at 18:30 on Friday, 25.01

Local Host in Bangalore: Manipal ProLearn – more logistics info you can find here
