City of Otsu has joined Hitachi Systems to develop an AI system which would detect bullying in the city schools. 

The AI system would be developed after analysing 9,000 suspected cases of bulling reported in it’s elementary and junior high schools over last 6 years.

The system is expected to identify gender of victim and perpetrators, when and where the bullying occurred and the intensity of the event.

The education board believes the analysis, expected to be completed by October, will make known the characteristics of bullying to help teachers identify cases in their classrooms.
