Data Set Clickbait

Published on April 6th, 2017 | by Joshua New


Fighting Clickbait on Social Media

The Bauhaus-Universität Weimar in Germany and Google’s Germany campus are hosting the Clickbait Challenge to encourage the development of algorithms that can predict how likely a post on social media is clickbait. The Clickbait Challenge will make three datasets available to participants—a training dataset of labeled examples of clickbait, a dataset of 15,000 unlabeled posts for testing, and an additional 15,000 post dataset for validation. The challenge has already made the training dataset available, and it will publish the remaining two over the next several weeks.

Get the data.
