Three months ago I started designing an innovative product based in the IBM Artificial Intelligence (Watson), it will help to detect bullying in schools. It has been very exciting because it is the first time AI is used to detect bullying.
The main problem is to be able to detect bullying in the first phase, when the student still does not present symptoms of depression and stress because she or he has not come to suffer a high state of harassment. In this situation that is not able of communicating neither to teachers or parents. To do this we were thinking about how to create Watsom Assistant, a robot or avatar who will be found in schools that can be accessed by students wishing to start a conversation with a robot.
