The spread of online misinformation and hate speech shows no signs of ceasing. Yet, current approaches towards tackling the problem are still largely insufficient. Recently, a growing number of research studies have started looking at the effectiveness of Counterspeech and automating such approaches. While Counterspeech can be a successful means in fighting online hate speech, one of its biggest weaknesses is that there is no way of reliably and accurately evaluating Counterspeech. This talk will consider examples of good and bad Counterspeech. Moreover, I will address the question of how we can measure or evaluate the quality of Counterspeech. Can we develop a metric to automatically evaluate Counterspeech online?
