--- Background and objectives ---
Can Artificial Intelligence help preventing and fight cyberviolence, cyberbullying and hate online? Addressing such question is the goal of the proposed postdoctoral/research engineer position, that proposes to rely on natural language processing methods to detect hate messages exchanged in social networks and automatically generate counter-arguments to oppose hate content.

More specifically, the candidate will focus on:
- the refinement and integration of existing technologies for social media monitoring and hate-speech detection developed by the hosting team
- the improvement of their robustness and portability to the French language
- the generation of counter-arguments to oppose hate content
