My name is Kazuki Sakai(M1).

During Mar. 5th to 7th, NAIST Graduate School of Information Science held Spring Seminar and Open Campus.Then, CICP presentations was also held.If you attended the seminar or Open Campus, maybe you watched the presentations.I’ll show you about the presentations.

First, I’ll talk about CICP.
CICP, Creative and International Competitiveness Project, is an educational program of the Graduate School of Information Science in NAIST. The first purpose of this project is giving opportunity to raise a student’s ability to plan and develop research projects and communication skills. Students suggest a research theme by themselves, and if approved, they get a budget for research, and challenge the theme in one year.

I’ll show you the research theme list in this year.

My research theme is
(r u sure about the tweet?” ENJOY: the flaming prevention system)

Nowadays, “flaming”, a hostile and insulting interaction between Internet users, often involving the use of profanity. We want to prevent it on Twitter, so we made an application, ENJOY: the flaming prevention system. This project is composed by four members, three students are from Computational Linguistics Lab, and I’m from Interactive Media Design Lab. The user input tweet to this system, and system analyses input sentence. Finally, system suggest 4 outputs.

  • Flaming level : It represents the tweet flaming level, like “safe”, “warning”, “dangerous”(“safe” tweet has low risk of flaming, and “danger” tweet has high risk).
  • Point out “dangerous words” in input tweet : These words have high risk of flaming.
  • An alternative tweet : the system modifies dangerous tweet, and make more low risk tweet.
  • Expected reply list : The system suggests the reply list. If user upload raw tweet to twitter, you can get these expected replies.

My task is making system UI. I am using bootstarp, it is a library to make modern websites like Twitter. The main page of this system represents all information in one window. The base color is red and white because this system treat user tweet like a doctor(this system name is 炎女医(ENJOY), 炎 means flaming, 女医 means woman doctor). System gets Twitter’s user timeline, so you can use this system as a twitter client app. You can watch a cute girl at the lower left of window. Her name is 炎女医ちゃん, our website mascot character. She treat our tweets.

We showed our demo in these days.All participants can vote for their favorite work, and the team which make the most popular application got a prize.

Mar. 5th was only simple presentation, so we showed our demo from 6th March.This day was the final day of Spring Seminar, and all participants were members of this seminar.The presentation in that day was short, but we could show our demo for many students.We could also watch other team’s demos, and all of them looked so interesting and useful applications.All participants and presenters enjoyed those applications.

In the Open Campus, 7th March, we exhibited our demo for public audience.There were many people in exhibition place.

One of purpose of CICP is to raise students communication skills.
If you join CICP, you have to make many presentations, so you have to think about the order of story, and timing of demonstration.Your presentation skills will improve steadily each time you present your demo.

If you would like to join CICP, you should join to this project!You will difinitly spend fullfilinng days!.
