UM students develop #MeTooMaastricht Chatbot

Students of Maastricht University's (UM) Department of Data Science and Knowledge Engineering have developed a so-called chatbot for victims of sexual violence. This automated conversation partner supports the victims and refers them, if requested, to organisations that can provide information about the consequences of and coping with traumatic events. These events can range from rape to verbal harassment at work, for example.
