Project description

HateSonar: Hate Speech Detection

HateSonar is the hate speech detection library for Python.

Demo Image.

Behold, the power of HateSonar:

>>> from hatesonar import Sonar
>>> sonar = Sonar()
>>>"At least I'm not a nigger")
  "text" : "At least I'm not a nigger",
  "top_class" : "hate_speech",
  "classes" : [ {
    "class_name" : "hate_speech",
    "confidence" : 0.6001793646345871
  }, {
    "class_name" : "offensive_language",
    "confidence" : 0.399548534507691
  }, {
    "class_name": "neither",
    "confidence": 0.0002721008577219325
  } ]

HateSonar allows you to detect hate speech and offensive language in text, without the need for training. There's no need to train the model. You have only to fed text into HateSonar. It detects hate speech with the confidence score.
