Academics using cutting-edge algorithms to monitor online hate

Academics using cutting-edge algorithms to monitor online hate
Artificial intelligence (AI) is being used to tackle anti-Polish hate crime in the run up to Brexit. Researchers at HateLab, based at Cardiff University, are working with Samurai Labs, a Polish Artificial Intelligence laboratory, to monitor aggressive social media content and pinpoint any connections to offline events. The year following the Brexit vote saw the largest spike in police recorded hate crime – up 57% on the previous year.

Universal pattern in the way we surf our smartphones

Universal pattern in the way we surf our smartphones
Humans are unknowingly adhering to a universal pattern when they flick between apps on their smartphones, scientists have discovered. Experts from Cardiff University have shown that although we spend a varying amount of time glued to our screens, the way in which we specifically switch between our different apps is remarkably similar.

Scientists develop lie detector for written text

Scientists develop lie detector for written text
Scientists have developed a computer tool that can spot if somebody has filed a fake police statement based purely on the text included in the document. Using a combination of automatic text analysis and advanced machine learning techniques, the tool has been able to successfully identify false robbery reports with over 80% accuracy.

Automated facial recognition tech in major policing operations

Automated facial recognition tech in major policing operations
Academics at Cardiff University have conducted the first independent academic evaluation of Automated Facial Recognition (AFR) technology across a variety of major policing operations. The project by the Universities’ Police Science Institute evaluated South Wales Police’s deployment of Automated Facial Recognition across several major sporting and entertainment events in Cardiff city over more than a year, including the UEFA Champion’s League Final and the Autumn Rugby Internationals.

Could AI robots develop prejudice on their own?

Could AI robots develop prejudice on their own?
Showing prejudice towards others does not require a high level of cognitive ability and could easily be exhibited by artificially intelligent machines, new research has suggested. Computer science and psychology experts from Cardiff University and MIT have shown that groups of autonomous machines could demonstrate prejudice by simply identifying, copying and learning this behaviour from one another.

University launches Institute for Compound Semiconductors

University launches Institute for Compound Semiconductors
In order to take research findings out of the lab and put them into the hands of those who can best exploit them, Cardiff University has launched the Institute for Compound Semiconductors (ICS). The aim is to bridge the exploitation gap, or 'valley of death'. The ICS aims to position South East Wales as the European leader in compound semiconductors, providing facilities that help researchers and industry work together to meet consumer demand by progressing academic research to a point where it can be introduced reliably and quickly into the production environment.

EU funded project develops future offshore DC grids

EU funded project develops future offshore DC grids
Having made some important advances towards future offshore DC grids, a European Union-funded project that has trained the next-gen of offshore wind experts has just concluded. ‘MEDOW’ was an ‘Initial Training Network’ funded by the EU’s Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme. It aimed to provide a ‘training through research’ approach to the exciting new field of multi-terminal DC grids for offshore wind power by appointing and training 17 promising young power systems engineers.

Energy pathways calculator aims to solve Bangladesh's power needs

Energy pathways calculator aims to solve Bangladesh's power needs
Growth is expected to drive up energy demand in Bangladesh, however domestic reserves of conventional fuels are dwindling. A web-based computer model to help the country to get to grips with its energy needs has been developed by Cardiff University. An open, interactive computer model will enable policy makers in one of the world’s most densely populated countries - or anyone else - to consider different approaches to the country’s energy policy for the next 35 years.
