  • Developing a Messaging Application that Filters SMS Spam Messages Using Machine Learning

    Numan, Muhammad; Bashehab, Mayan; Alanood, Alhuttami; Layal, Alsilani; Computer Science
    The increasing prevalence of SMS spam poses a significant challenge as mobile devices have become integral to daily life. Spam messages target individuals and can lead to high impacts, as they can evolve into phishing attacks or even social engineering. Our project holds significance in contributing to the safety of the community by reducing the number of spam victims. It aims to improve existing spam filtering solutions to provide a safer and more user-friendly experience, thereby reducing the vulnerability of users to spam and phishing attacks. Through state-of-the-art analysis, we identified a common gap: the lack of real-world application testing. In our methodology, we utilized the TensorFlow Lite Model Maker library to simplify the adaptation and deployment of an NLP neural network model text classification model on mobile devices. Our result is a meticulously designed user-friendly application that flags spam messages in real-time, o ering a safer messaging experience.
  • Ordinary Dreams

    ivaniceva, Marina; Khalil, Tala; Cinematic Arts
    In a culturally rich setting, Lara, a 25-year-old woman with Arab heritage, finds herself entangled in the age-old traditions and expectations of her family. Engaged to Ahmed, a dedicated doctor from a more open-minded background, Lara's desires clash with her family's staunch adherence to customs. Despite her earnest attempts to meet Ahmed, Lara faces relentless resistance from her younger brother, Khaled, who, acting as her guardian, upholds traditional values. Their interactions reflect the collision between Lara's aspirations for independence and her family's protective stance. Desperate to bridge the gap between tradition and her yearning for autonomy, Lara risks her family's wrath by clandestinely meeting Ahmed. However, their secret rendezvous is violently interrupted when Khaled, driven by a sense of duty, confronts Ahmed, leading to a tragic altercation that lands Ahmed in the hospital. As emotions spiral out of control, Lara confronts her father, highlighting the detrimental impact of rigid customs. Her impassioned plea for freedom and autonomy reverberates through the hospital halls, challenging the family's deep-rooted beliefs. The story culminates in a poignant realization, as Lara's father grapples with the consequences of blindly adhering to tradition. It's a moment of reckoning that forces a reevaluation of the family's values and the cost of preserving long-standing customs at the expense of individual happiness
  • EFFECTS OF MEDIA VIOLENCE ON CHILDREN

    Jaber AlGhalib, Dr Saddiga; aljeaid, shahad; Psychology
    This paper examines current violent behaviors caused by TV, social media as, according to analysis's, they influence youth, and their lifestyles. This research project has taken approximately 20 studies into consideration to demonstrate that tv, music, movie, the Internet, computer games and the news play a significant role to promote violence among adults and youngsters. The paper does not have empirical proof that either of the mediums is solely to blame for the abuse in the youths. This paper discusses a hypothesis that the integration of all of the above mediums, as well as other cultural influences, contributes to violence. The paper will explore the impact of media, violence caused by media particularly among our youngsters by analyzing past literary work. It is concluded, majority of the literature I examined concentrated on disclosing the outcome of violence rather than the violence cause. The study that portrayed violence through media has shown that violence has negative effects on children, such as children becoming apathetic towards the suffering of others, they may become fearful, and also are more likely to become aggressive towards people. Moreover, research has also shown that excessive watching of violence on media may make children more aggressive and may make them less sensitive towards real-world violence. Although violence on media is not the only factor that determines aggression levels or other negative effects in children, it could be a combination
  • Investigating the arabic dubbing strategies of Songs ( Disney’s) Encanto 2021

    Khuddro, Ahmad; Qaid, Naeem; Master of Science in Translation and Interpreting
    This research explores the strategies used in dubbing Disney’s Encanto cartoons into Arabic, explicitly focusing on using EVA and MSA in the dubbed songs. The study seeks to answer three research questions: (1) To what extent did the dubber omit, add, or change information from the SL into TL to appeal to the target audience? (2) What is the effect of dubbed songs in EVA? (3) How do Arabic-speaking audiences perceive the use of cultural and linguistic references in dubbed songs and films, and how does this impact their enjoyment and understanding of the media? By using the descriptive method, the study identifies problematic issues faced during the dubbing process and analyze the translation procedures used in translating culture-bound expressions in EVA following Newmark's (1988) theory. Additionally, the study will use questionnaire to collect data from the Millennial Generation and Generation Z, consisting of 20 questions with various categories to determine their preferences in dubbing strategies. The study's primary purpose is to investigate audience preferences for Arabic language and the adaptation of the original text to local language and cultural norms. Furthermore, the study will shed light on the impact of dubbed songs in vernacular Arabic on the audience's perception and enjoyment of the media and provide insights into how cultural and linguistic references in dubbed songs and films influence audience understanding. This research explores the impact of using MSA and EVA in dubbed songs. It compares these two Arabic varieties' linguistic features, cultural references, and audience reception. By examining the differences, this study aims to deepen our understanding of how language choice influences audience engagement and how dialects reflect cultural nuances.
