In 2014, Trisha Prabhu 13, invented an anti-school bullying system ‘ReThink’. The App’s main purpose is to detect rude and offensive language that may be part of messages teens send on the social network.
ReThink is a non-intrusive, patented software product that stops cyber bullying before any damage is done. The software scans messages and prompts a warning, one of which says “Is this message worthy of you?”.
Trish ran 1500 trials and found when young people received a ReThink prompt they changed their minds 93 percent of the time.
In 2014, Trisha was a Google Science Fair finalist, and from then on she has received numerous awards and introduced her project to the White House as well as in several universities as well as during the famous TED conference.
