Here is to open a guaranteed means of be too in a good mood, Mr.: just quickly Twitter. Soon, the Timeline of all of the pages will be flooded with such poisonous comments, that any of the still remaining rest will believe washed up on the Good and the Beautiful in the people away. Old against Young, men against women, everyone against everyone - the stupid comment has become in the Internet long ago. In the best case, only harebrained and just plain wrong, and in the worst case, actively hurtful, hateful against every conceivable minority.
remedy promises a small extension for Google's Chrome Browser. The Software called Tune is installed, click on a small Button at the upper right-hand corner of the window, then a menu, in which you can determine how a volume control the sound on the visited web pages will open. The toxicity on the Internet is on four levels carefully regulated. At one end of the scale, Zen Mode is to be filtered out, in the simple all of the comments, on the other hand, it is the according to the picturesque and very well taken Blaring, so Whine.

the program was Developed by Google's ideas incubator Jigsaw. It is dedicated to the task to make the Internet a better place. Although indicating that the Software stage is still in a Experimental, it works amazingly well. The Tune is based on a local project called Conversation-AI. It is, therefore, an artificial intelligence. After a couple of million people have given the Software, what you perceive as hurtful and offensive, it is believed, to can a good idea of what kind of speech is appropriate and what is not. So far, only large Newspapers such as the New York Times and the Guardian, but also the Wikipedia could experiment with the Software, in the hope that the marauding users of hordes get your comment areas under control.
so, Now the end user access to the technology. The Software works only on English but also on all major Social Media platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Reddit as well as the Online service of Disqus, keeps the Comment sections of many large Blogs. Exactly these sites to show Yes, as far as the content Filtering, experience has shown that very behavior. Finally, the escalation belongs there to a certain extent on the business model: Who is upset, engages more in the buttons than someone who sees his world view confirmed. So racist groups and White-Supremacy-be preacher locked, it is necessary in the case of Facebook, unfortunately, only one attack, most recently in Christchurch, new Zealand.
Leads the Tune to a better discourse on climate in the network? Chrome has a worldwide market share of more than 70 percent. Now, if every user would install the Software, the network still no Zen garden, but a much more peaceful place than it is today. The only question is, whether the Hide is ever the right way. Just because the hate comments are no longer visible, doesn't mean that the people disappear, you are composing. If you leave them now, not the house and yard? You will not be radicalized even further? Can, no, should we turn the wickedness of the world?
Tune is the logical consequence of a for a long time in the Internet nearly written law that regulates the handling of such a Design. It is this: Don't feed the troll. This means that you should give the spiteful users. Then you would have to lose at some point, the interest. It is the digital equivalent of that wisdom, which have given to the parents to deal with schoolyard bully ready - and already didn't work back then, most of the time.
