[D] Wired: Using AI to assess toxicity on social media | “Drag Queen vs. David Duke: Whose Tweets Are More ‘Toxic’?”

Wired posted this article about using AI to assess toxicity on social media.

We are starting to see the impact of using AI/ML on everyday interactions and communications, not to mention policing. One of the most interesting and relevant conclusions:

The use of Perspective and other similar technologies could thus be mistakenly used to police and censor legitimate LGBTQ speech on online platforms. If AI tools focus on misleading signals—such as the use of specific words, rather than a message’s intent—such models will make little progress in removing hate speech.
