Methods and Models

As the part of the project REBELION, we proposed and evaluated a number of methods and models for:

  • capturing features of textual documents, which are important for detection of antisocial behaviour
  • sentiment classification of the content created at social networks
  • contributing users in online discussions
  • detection of fake news
  • multilingual detection of hate speech
  • detection of trolls in online discussions

In addition, we are working on proposal and implemention of Monant platform, which serves for real-time and scalable web monitoring, mediating results exchange among models/methods and for providing public as well as experts users with end-user services.
