Abstract

In this project we explore the presence of ambiguity in textual and visual media and its influence on accurately understanding and capturing bias in news. We study this topic in the context of supporting media scholars and social scientists in their media analysis. Our focus lies on racial and gender bias as well as framing and the comparison of their manifestation across modalities, cultures and languages. In this paper we lay out a human in the loop approach to investigate the role of ambiguity in detection and interpretation of bias.
