Study shows AI can identify fear and danger in the voices of abused women

Revolutionizing Gender Violence Prevention: The AI-Powered Approach of Esther Rituerto.

Esther Rituerto, a Spanish researcher, has made significant strides in the field of gender violence prevention. Her work involves using artificial intelligence to detect sexist violence and dangerous situations for women. By analyzing a woman’s voice for signs of fear and surrounding sounds that signal danger, Rituerto aims to prevent attacks and combat sexist abuse.

Rituerto’s innovative approach to using technology in the fight against gender violence has been recognized by the Government Delegation against Gender Violence in Spain. They praise her use of artificial intelligence to understand women’s reactions to risk or danger and develop automatic mechanisms for detecting these situations based on sound cues.

Rituerto’s research is part of the UC3M4Safety project at the Carlos III University of Madrid, which aims to use technology to prevent, detect, and protect victims of gender violence. She and her team have developed electronic devices that can detect fear in victims through their voice and vital signs, triggering alerts to emergency services and law enforcement.

In addition to her work with speech and acoustic signals, Rituerto has also conducted research on using artificial intelligence to detect signs of gender violence in a woman’s voice. By analyzing voice patterns and characteristics, the technology can determine if a woman has been a victim of abuse with 73% accuracy.

Rituerto’s ongoing research focuses on using artificial intelligence to detect mental illnesses in brain images. Her work is paving the way for innovative technologies that can help protect victims of gender violence and improve detection and prevention methods in the future.

Overall, Rituerto’s contributions have greatly advanced our understanding of how technology can be used to combat gender violence, and her work continues to inspire new approaches that will help keep women safe from harm.
