The New York Times To Use AI In Comments Sections

The New York Times wants to detect toxic comments

Google is assisting the New York Times in expanding its online comments section. The search giant is contributing a AI system called Perspective which will allow human comment moderators to detect harassment, hate speech, or anything defined as “toxic”, more quickly than they would be able to otherwise. According to the newspaper, this should allow them to increase the amount of published stories that users can now comment on to somewhere around 80%.
