Dataset Summary

Discussing things you care about can be difficult. The threat of abuse and harassment online means that many people stop expressing themselves and give up on seeking different opinions. Platforms struggle to effectively facilitate conversations, leading many communities to limit or completely shut down user comments. This dataset consists of a large number of Wikipedia comments which have been labeled by human raters for toxic behavior.

Supported Tasks and Leaderboards

The dataset support multi-label classification


The comments are in English

Dataset Structure

Data Instances

A data point consists of a comment followed by multiple labels that can be associated with it. {'id': '02141412314', 'comment_text': 'Sample comment text', 'toxic': 0, 'severe_toxic': 0, 'obscene': 0, 'threat': 0, 'insult': 0, 'identity_hate': 1, }

Data Fields

  • id: id of the comment
  • comment_text: the text of the comment
  • toxic: value of 0(non-toxic) or 1(toxic) classifying the comment
  • severe_toxic: value of 0(non-severe_toxic) or 1(severe_toxic) classifying the comment

Discussion of Biases

If words that are associated with swearing, insults or profanity are present in a comment, it is likely that it will be classified as toxic, regardless of the tone or the intent of the author e.g. humorous/self-deprecating. This could present some biases towards already vulnerable minority groups.
