Cyber violence is an increasingly growing concern among children and adolescents. Number of children admitted to hospitals for attempted suicide or expressing suicidal thoughts doubled between 2008 and 2015 - much of the rise is linked to an increase in cyberbullying. Problem conerns also adults - EU estimates that 1 in 10 women have experienced some form of cyber violence. Online violence causes a massive outflow of portal and game users - more than 20% of players left the game due to cyberbullying and 35.8% of women quit playing temporarily because of sexism. These kinds of actions results in a significant reduction of revenues for entities in the industry. Therefore, the health and economic implications of cyber violence provide a compelling multimillion business opportunity. Fido has developed a game-changing Samurai system, artificial intelligence solution dedicated to real-time, automated prevention of online violence in text communication, based on a novel patent. The recent studies show that that our technology detects the most violence and raises false alarms four times less often than the current solutions.
Fido main customers are game industry players, communication/education platforms and social media. During the first 5 years of commercialisation of Samurai we expect to generate EUR12,7 m in turnover and hire additional 18 workers.
Fido Voice is a high-tech Polish SME, supported by business angels, specialising in artificial intelligence and natural language understanding. Our technology was recognised as one of the 100 most promising artificial intelligence solutions in the world (Top 100 AI CBInsights 2017).
