EurekAlert: QUT algorithm could quash Twitter abuse of women

EurekAlert: QUT algorithm could quash Twitter abuse of women. “Online abuse targeting women, including threats of harm or sexual violence, has proliferated across all social media platforms but [Queensland University of Technology] researchers have developed a statistical model to help drum it out of the Twittersphere. Associate Professor Richi Nayak, Professor Nicolas Suzor and research fellow Dr Md Abul Bashar from QUT have developed a sophisticated and accurate algorithm to detect these posts on Twitter, cutting through the raucous rabble of millions of tweets to identify misogynistic content.”
