Work presented at International Summit on Suicide Research

Posted on Oct. 11, 2015

Today, Bart is presenting his work on 'Online Suicide Risk Detection Using Automatic Text Classification' at the IASR/AFSP International Summit on Suicide Research. In his presentation Bart will discuss the system he developed in the framework of his PhD and how it is currently being validated on the message boards of two Belgian LGBT organizations. Volunteer website moderators, faced with an above-average amount of suicide-related content, receive training on how to screen possibly alarming content and how best to respond, through an e-tool developed by CPZ specialists.
