Developing an online cloud-based cyberbullying detection system - to implement a cyberbullying detection system that integrates with popular social media services such as Facebook and Twitter.

Researchers and IT professionals will have access to download, use, and test the open-source code license for this detection system that will be freely available on the Internet with simple installation instructions, and a highly user-friendly interactive dashboard that can be used by schools and parents as needed.

This project will focus on the key natural language processing technologies that will allow traces of cyber-bullying to be captured and classified. The outcomes from this project will lead to free and easy-to-install software where the system picks up patterns in social media interactions that can be construed as potential cyber-bullying.
