Dr. Claudia von Vacano (Executive Director of the Social Sciences D-Lab & Digital Humanities at Berkeley): will present about the Measuring Hate Speech Research team used Google Cloud in their workflow and this talk will focus on the power that provided the team in terms of labeling comments to train a Machine Learning model using both Qualtrics and Mechanical Turk. The Measuring Hate Speech Research team connected a labeling instrument for Machine Learning, hosted on Qualtrics, to a comment batch server using web service requests in order to reserve comment batches and then mark them as completed. The comment batch server was hosted as a Python serverless function in Google Cloud with a MySQL database backend.
