Can Computers Stop Bullying?


Could this program developed by MIT scientists put an end to bullying? 

As it turns out, bullies aren't very creative and therefore their actions can be pretty easily detected by a computer program. 

"It's kind of funny how in a world where the cloak of online anonymity can bring out the worst in people, that a well calibrated algorithm may be exactly what we need for a little human compassion."
