Perm Scholars Eradicate Verbal Aggression From the Internet

Foul language that abounds on the Internet is just one side of the same coin: verbal aggression. And whereas swearings as such may be ignored and forgotten, aggression is a different matter: it is harder to manage and more painful. 

      FILTEX program developed by young scholars from the University of Perm analyses the text on the page and blocks comments and passages containing aggression. 

      The technology used in the program is underpinned by research methods of other Perm scholars, in particular Prof. Margarita Kozhina who recognises systemic qualities of speech. This method suggests that on any level of a language - be it vocabulary, morphology or syntaxis - it is possible trace specific traits of aggression. Once formalised using computation, this method can then be adapted to a computer program. 

      The FILTEX focus group potentially consists of active bloggers, politicians, and various organisations who wish to clean their web properties of illicit and aggressive comments. Technology can also be useful for the Russian mass-media. While individual users will access FILTEX as an app in social networks, organisation will be able to use it as a web service. 

      The program is developed by Evgenia Mekhonina, a Ph.D. student at the Department of Verbal Communication at the Perm University, and a Department assistant Liana Yermakova. Young scholars are guided in their research by Prof. Vladimir Salimovsky and Dr. Daniil Kurushin. Intellectual property rights have already been registered, and in spring 2013 the first user-friendly version will appear.
