I’m Dr. Henry Lieberman, principal research scientist at the MIT Media Lab, investigating cyberbullying. Ask me anything.
Henry Lieberman, here, starting the AMA at 12:30pm EDT on Monday 11 March until 2:30pm. I had already answered a few questions, below.
I am studying online bullying behavior, along with my students Karthik Dinakar and Birago Jones. We are working on software that can detect bullying language and behavior. Here's a very short video I did recently with NowThisNews about our work: http://nowth.is/Y9GUH1.

We hope that the outcome of our work will be to help educate kids about bullying, and to get everybody involved (bullies, victims, and bystanders) to reflect on their behavior. We hope this will help make every social networks a more welcoming and safe environment to interact.
