    Rapid advancements in mobile computing and communication technology and recent technological progress have opened up a plethora of opportunities. These advancements have expanded knowledge, facilitated global business, enhanced collaboration, and connected people through various digital media platforms. While these virtual platforms have provided new avenues for communication and self-expression, they also pose significant threats to our privacy. As a result, we must remain vigilant against the propagation of electronic violence through social networks. Cyberbullying has emerged as a particularly concerning form of online harassment and bullying, with instances of racism, terrorism, and various types of trolling becoming increasingly prevalent worldwide.

    Addressing the issue of cyberbullying to find effective solutions is a challenge for the web mining community, particularly within the realm of social media. In this context, artificial intelligence (AI) can serve as a valuable tool in combating the diverse manifestations of cyberbullying on the Internet and social networks. This book presents the latest cutting-edge research, theoretical methods, and novel applications in AI techniques to combat cyberbullying. Discussing new models, practical solutions, and technological advances related to detecting and analyzing cyberbullying is based on AI models and other related techniques. Furthermore, the book helps readers understand AI techniques to combat cyberbullying systematically and forthrightly, as well as future insights and the societal and technical aspects of natural language processing (NLP)-based cyberbullying research efforts.

    Key Features:

    • Proposes new models, practical solutions and technological advances related to machine intelligence techniques for detecting cyberbullying across multiple social media platforms.
    • Combines both theory and practice so that readers (beginners or experts) of this book can find both a description of the concepts and context related to the machine intelligence.
    • Includes many case studies and applications of machine intelligence for combating cyberbullying.
