Ruminati: Tackling Cyberbullying with Computational Empathy

The scourge of cyberbullying has assumed worrisome proportions, with an ever-increasing number of adolescents admitting to having dealt with it either as a victim or a bystander. Anonymity and the lack of meaningful supervision in the electronic medium are two factors that have exacerbated this social menace. This project explores computational methods from natural language processing and reflective user interfaces to alleviate this problem.
