Radicalization is a problem of the modern society that causes moral, political, financial and social damage jeopardizing and eliminating democracy that at the end can result in irreversible consequences for the society. The objective of the ongoing multidisciplinary project that combines findings of communication research, history, social (crowd) psychology, linguistics and computer science is a trustworthy computer simulation of the Nazi ideology impact reproducing radicalization in Germany of the Weimar Republic in 1929-1933. Carried out in collaboration with the Institute of Empirical Communication Research of Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering of Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, the project focuses on diffusion (information spread), as well as propaganda and persuasion in political speeches and acquires hence deeper understanding of societal radicalization presenting findings about new approaches to resist and to prevent radicalization.
