To make your online life slightly stress-free, a Google Chrome extension called Tune is taking the help of artificial intelligence (AI). Initially, its performance will be limited to Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, YouTube, and Disqus.
Jigsaw acknowledges that Tune's machine learning algorithms are still experimental, meaning that it will not hide all toxic comments and may sometimes block non-toxic comments. With the new extension named Tune, people can monitor abusive comments through several websites and posts easily.
However, Tune isn't capable enough to filter out comments from all platforms. "We hope Tune inspires developers to find new ways to put more control into the hands of readers to adjust the level of toxicity they see across the internet", the post states.More news: Kylie Jenner Had Another Name In Mind for Stormi!
"Tune lets you turn the volume of toxic comments down for "zen mode" to skip comments completely, or turn it up to see everything - even the mean stuff".
Most users will want to set their volume somewhere in the middle, and Tune can filter out attacks, insults, profanity, and more.
The new extension will be powered by Perspective AI, developed by Jigsaw, a subsidiary of Alphabet Inc.More news: Back 4 Blood Co-Op Zombie Game Announced by Left 4 Dead Creators
"It still misses some toxic comments and incorrectly hides some non-toxic comments", and they say that they're "constantly working to improve the underlying technology". It uses the machine learning technology from Jigsaw's Perspective API, used in automated moderation tools, to spot trolls, according to a blog post from Jigsaw product manager CJ Adams.
It should also be noted that Tune doesn't work across the entire web, but rather only on specific platforms.More news: Another Amazon device is getting Apple Music support in the US
