Abstract—This paper proposes a novel system to detect social polarization and to estimate the chances of violent radicalization associated with it. The required processes for such a system are indicated; it is also analyzed how existing technologies can be integrated into the proposed system to fulfill the objectives. We propose a scalable design to enable integration and extension of future state of the art technologies into the system.
