Robots Are Removing Offensive Content from Twitter
Twitter began using robots to remove images that contain violence or pornography. According to New Statesman, it is just a part of a long-term program to introduce the artificial intelligence system, Twitter Cortex, that will control content on the social network.
It’s estimated that robots can filter up to 99% of offensive imagery. It’s also mentioned that about 7% of content will be blocked by mistake.
Earlier, the company employed thousands of the moderators to spot offensive imagery. They predominately worked in Asia and on average were receiving about $300 per month each.
