PROTECT - A Pipeline for Propaganda Detection and Classification

Abstract : Propaganda is a rhetorical technique to present opinions with the deliberate goal of influencing the opinions and the actions of other (groups of) individuals for predetermined misleading ends. The employment of such manipulation techniques in politics and news articles, as well as its subsequent spread on social networks, may lead to threatening consequences for the society and its more vulnerable members. In this paper, we present PROTECT (PROpaganda Text dEteCTion), a new system to automatically detect propagandist messages and classify them along with the propaganda techniques employed. PROTECT is designed as a full pipeline to firstly detect propaganda text snippets from the input text, and then classify the technique of propaganda, taking advantage of semantic and argumentation features. A video demo of the PROTECT system is also provided to show its main functionalities.
