What percentage of U.S. news articles about facial recognition will have a negative framing between July 1 and September 30, 2020, inclusive?
Context. Facial recognition technology is becoming increasingly controversial due to fears about widespread surveillance. The sentiment of media coverage on the topic is a proxy for public attitudes.
Background and resolution details. This question is based on data from Nexis Metabase (2020), a corpus of global news articles on a variety of topics. An article is about facial recognition if it mentions the term "facial recognition." Nexis uses a machine-learning trained sentiment-analysis model to evaluate the sentiment of an article on a scale of -1 to 1. For this question, an article has negative sentiment if its sentiment is less than 0. This question resolves when CSET receives Nexis data through September 30, 2020.
