Ars Technica: Google’s anti-trolling AI can be defeated by typos, researchers find. “Jigsaw’s Perspective project is an application interface currently focused on moderating online conversations—using machine learning to spot abusive, harassing, and toxic comments. The AI applies a “toxicity score” to comments, which can be used to either aide moderation or to reject comments outright, giving the commenter feedback about why their post was rejected. Jigsaw is currently partnering with Wikipedia and The New York Times, among others, to implement the Perspective API to assist in moderating reader-contributed content. But that AI still needs some training, as researchers at the University of Washington’s Network Security Lab recently demonstrated.”
