Defining And Detecting Toxicity On Social Media: Context And Knowledge Are Key, Amit Sheth, Valerie Shalin, Ugur Kursuncu

Publications

As the role of online platforms has become increasingly prominent for communication, toxic behaviors, such as cyberbullying and harassment, have been rampant in the last decade. On the other hand, online toxicity is multi-dimensional and sensitive in nature, which makes its detection challenging. As the impact of exposure to online toxicity can lead to serious implications for individuals and communities, reliable models and algorithms are required for detecting and understanding such communications. In this paper We define toxicity to provide a foundation drawing social theories. Then, we provide an approach that identifies multiple dimensions of toxicity and incorporates explicit knowledge ...


Advancing Christ: Understanding How Foreign Cultures Respond To Missionary Aviation, Aidan Van Pelt Apr 2021

Advancing Christ: Understanding How Foreign Cultures Respond To Missionary Aviation, Aidan Van Pelt

Senior Honors Theses

After World War II, missionary aviation became a profound influence on the world of missions. The impacts of missionary aviation culture on the spread of the Gospel in foreign locations will be investigated to better understand how it influences Christianity. The effect of expediting the travel-time to remote locations is apparent, but missionary pilots have several other influences as well, such as, community development, education and discipling locals. These various cultural aspects will be explored by first defining the culture, discussing the history of missiological responses and the origin of missionary aviation, and then examining the effects of missionary aviation ...


Decade Long Monitoring Of Active Galactic Nuclei With Swift, Tithi Patel, Dirk Grupe Apr 2021

Decade Long Monitoring Of Active Galactic Nuclei With Swift, Tithi Patel, Dirk Grupe

2021 Celebration of Student Scholarship - Oral Presentations

I will report decade-long monitoring campaigns with the NASA Neil-Gehrels Swift mission of about 100 Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN). Swift has started with monitoring some AGN since 2005. This long-term monitoring project has enabled us to catch AGN in extreme high and low X-ray flux states allowing to trigger follow-up observations by XMM-Newton, NuSTAR, HST. While this program has led in the past to at least one trigger per year, no AGN was found with extreme variability. I will also give a brief overview of the causes of this extreme variability.


Prosody And Attachment In Possessive Structures, Elizabeth Keeton, Katy Carlson Apr 2021

Prosody And Attachment In Possessive Structures, Elizabeth Keeton, Katy Carlson

2021 Celebration of Student Scholarship - Oral Presentations

In this project, we are studying the effect that prosodic boundaries and accent location have on attachment in an ambiguous phrase like “the daughter of the pharaoh’s advisor.” Under high possessive attachment, the phrase could mean, “There’s a daughter of the pharaoh, and we’re talking about her advisor.” If there is low possessive attachment instead, the phrase could be understood as, “There’s a pharaoh’s advisor, and we’re talking about his/her daughter.” In an auditory questionnaire, participants will listen to 24 dialogues, with the phrases preceded by the question “Who was it?” We placed ...

The Use Of Green Pond Conglomerate As Building Stone In Morris County, New Jersey, Gregory A. Pope

Department of Earth and Environmental Studies Faculty Scholarship and Creative Works

Green Pond Conglomerate (GPC) is a maroon colored quartzite with white quartz pebbles, a classic “puddingstone”. GPC derives from a NW-SW-trending sliver of Paleozoic sediments, the “Green Pond Outlier”, surrounded by older metamorphic and igneous rocks of Morris and Passaic Counties. Buildings, retaining walls, field fences, and monuments incorporate the durable and attractive stone, in a distinct geographic area of Morris County. Several instances of structures completely constructed or faced with GPC occur in and around Morristown, limited to affluent houses and one prominent church. In these cases, GPC stones were dressed and faced, a labor-intensive effort. Elsewhere in the ...

A Measure Of All Minds: A Classification Of The Artificial Intelligence Strengths And Virtues & The Creation Of The Thetis Dimensions Of Cybernetic Wellbeing, Seth Robin Norman

Master of Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) Capstone Projects

Artificial intelligence has generated more ambivalence than any technology in human history. As Silicon Valley enters the third decade of its self-proclaimed era of artificial intelligence, there is still surprisingly little agreement about the nature of the 21st century’s defining invention, and even less about how our relationship with this seminal technology should be managed in the future. Positive psychology offers software engineers methods to cultivate a greater understanding of the unique strengths of the artificial intelligence programs they develop, as well as the effects to wellbeing triggered by the applications they deploy. In this paper, I will ...

Conceptualizing A Theory Of Ethical Behavior In Engineering, Luan Minh Nguyen, Cristina Poleacovschi, Kasey M. Faust, Kate Padgett-Walsh, Scott G. Feinstein, Cassandra J. Rutherford

Philosophy and Religious Studies Publications

Traditional engineering courses typically approach teaching and problem solving by focusing on the physical dimensions of those problems without consideration of dynamic social and ethical dimensions. As such, projects can fail to consider human rights, community questions and concerns, broader impacts upon society, or otherwise result in inequitable outcomes. And, despite the fact that students in engineering receive training on the Professional Code of Ethics for Engineers, to which they are expected to adhere in practice, many students are unable to recognize and analyze real-life ethical challenges as they arise. Indeed, research has found that students are typically less engaged ...

Organizational Performance and Workplace Learning Faculty Publications and Presentations

Even without a focused interest in the topic, as we enter the third decade of the 21st Century one would have a difficult time ignoring the steady flow of stories reporting tragic consequences arising from engineering decisions that appear to have omitted ethical components, and of ethical dilemmas arising from contemporary engineering and computer science. Similarly, one would have to be willful to miss an equally steady drumbeat of calls for improved ethics in engineering and computer science education.

However, one can make the argument that simply offering new or more content related to ethics in engineering education is not ...
