If you’ve ever visited any Reddit message board or YouTube comment section, you know internet trolls and hate speech go hand in hand. A new study from Georgia Tech suggests the most effective way of combating internet hate speech is to eliminate the spaces where it occurs, not the trolls individually. School of Interactive Computing Assistant Professor Jacob Eisenstein, a member of the research team, is interviewed about the study (begins at 13:55).
