AI Filters Out Female Harassment In Video Games
Artificial intelligence is combatting the online harassment women suffer while playing video games.
Many experience objectifying comments, and even threats to rape or kill, during online gaming conversations through their headsets.
Audio Studio technology, created by Israeli startup Dataloop, monitors their exchanges and eliminates inappropriate words.
It annotates audio recordings, meaning it turns it into data so that machines can understand the content. It can distinguish between different speakers within the audio, highlight transcription text as the audio is being played, and understand multiple languages.
Over half of all female gamers hide their gender to avoid abuse and sexism, according to a survey conducted in the US, Germany, and China.
Dataloop’s platform is used for many industries, including retail, drones and aerial imagery, robotics, autonomous vehicles, precision agriculture, and media and content.
Businesses of every size use it to accelerate the development and deployment of AI into production.
Dataloop was founded in 2017, and is based in Herzliya.
