According to a report by financial times(Opens in new tab)Google is developing a tool to help small businesses, such as startups, edit outliers.
The internal project was created in collaboration with UN-backed Tech Against Terrorism.
Google claims the initiative is intended to assist moderators in detecting and removing potentially illegal content from websites, including hateful and racist comments.
Google to combat terrorism
The Global Internet Forum provided a database of terrorist elements that made the project possible. It was created by a group including tech giants such as Google, Meta, Microsoft, and Twitter.
It is specifically designed for small businesses that are unable or unwilling to provide the resources necessary to moderate effectively, regardless of whether they have large teams of workers and expensive AI tools.
It is a useful tool in a time when extremists are moving to smaller platforms to express their opinions. It serves as a safeguard to companies that respond to the EU’s Digital Services Act or the UK’s upcoming Online Safety Bill. These bills penalize companies who do not remove such content.
It seems that it will operate on an “opt-in” basis for the moment. Companies whose primary purpose in storing such messages will continue to do this even though they may be subject to fines.
Two companies (unnamed) are expected to test the code in the second half of this year. This indicates that full deployment may still be some time off.
Elsewhere, Meta has launched its own tool it calls Hasher-Matcher-Actioner (HMA). It is similar to Project Jigsaw and builds on existing tools for moderation of video and photos.
