Perspective – Host Better Conversations
Discussing things you care about can be difficult. The threat of abuse and harassment online means that many people stop expressing themselves and give up on seeking different opinions. Perspective is an API that makes it easier to host better conversations. The API uses machine learning models to score the perceived impact a comment might have on a conversation. Developers and publishers can use this score to give realtime feedback to commenters or help moderators do their job, or allow readers to more easily find relevant information. They will be releasing more machine learning models later in the year, but their first model identifies whether a comment could be perceived as “toxic” to a discussion. Perspective is in the early days of research and development. This will be added to Information Quality Resources Subject Trace™.
