Name of the Project: Acquisition and Analysis of Speeches to Identify Suspicious Contents

Funding Authority: This research project is funded and supported by the project ‘Establishment of IT Business Incubator at CUET’ via the Reference No. 56.02.0000.023.16.032.18.93, Date: 06/11/2018

Project Description: Speech is the most natural form of communication and interaction between humans. To attract and motivate people speeches are delivered by different people. Good, accurate and authentic speeches can guide people in right direction and can enrich their knowledge, patriotism and confidence level. As for example, one of the very few greatest speeches of all time in human history by our Father of the Nation, greatest legend in thousands years histories of Bangali nation, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman on March 07, 1971 highly motivated the general people of East Pakistan (later Bangladesh) to fight with whatever they had for the independence of East Pakistan. As a result, we got an independent country Bangladesh within nine months.

However, misguided speeches can create big problems for the society, country and the world. Misleading speeches continuously creating numerous humanitarian disasters throughout the world. Misleading speeches became a serious problem for our beloved country Bangladesh. Considering this fact, in this project we plan to develop an automated speech monitoring system to reduce the number of misleading speeches.
