Award-winning cyber security company

Company Description

Our client is an award winning, next generation digital parenting solution. It is aimed at families with children and focusing on helping parents with the issues of sexting, managing time spent on-line, cyberbullying, trolling, abuse, aggression and sextortion on social networks and messaging apps.

They're on a quest to develop a sophisticated AI system for the detection of emotion in typed text, in multiple languages. This smart technology will complement their existing tools which detect risky and concerning content through the keyboard, in the pursuit of safeguarding children from the various harms associated with the online world and social media.
In the context of this internship, you will work with social media and social forum data to develop algorithms which recognise when the author of the content is expressing particular emotions, including joy; sadness; surprise; anger; fear; and trust. You will also understand younger users (an understanding of slang, trends, hashtags, emojis etc).
Their newly recruited Annotators will be based in their London office, and will work with their existing annotators (both in London, and online in Canada).
