Dr. Malihe Alikhani and collaborators awarded DARPA grant

Together with collaborators Ajay Divakaran and Karan Sikka of SRI research, Dr. Malihe Alikhani (assistant professor, CS) is working on designing content moderation systems for social media called the Greate Facilitators with the goal of designing agents that will actively moderate social media content to foster positive dialogue and discourage harmful behaviors such as bullying. The proposal has received funding through the Department of Defense Civil Sanctuary program.

The aim is to provide technologies capable of supporting the Department of Defense humanitarian assistance efforts by facilitating online social environments where positive behavioral norms – those linked to the productive sharing of information, particularly during crises – are encouraged locally in user conversations through the use of multilingual AI moderators.
