Jigsaw (read: Google-adjacent) has an internet toxicity dial that uses machine learning to identify hateful or abusive comments.
It's a cool idea! But I dislike that the idea of trying to solve a societal ill with technology. This could be the piece of fixing our world, but it's not the solution. pcmag.com/news/366997/jigsaw-c

@maxeddy "toxicity"

This means it's using the same poisoned data as the "Perspectives API" and they're just confusing everyone with names, right?

@maxeddy
That's been exactly my mantra for twenty years when I'm wearing my product development hat:

You do not solve societal, political or cultural issues with technical solutions.

I've always rejected any requirements pointing in that direction and continue to do so.
