This AI enabled Chrome extension hides toxic comments to reduce your stress

Tune uses machine learning models to let people set a “volume” on popular websites Tune uses machine learning models to let people set a “volume” on popular websites

Online is a big, bad world and not everyone can be thick skinned so as to overlook the trolls, negative comments or insults.

"Never read the comments" is generally sound advice across the internet - and now a new free Chrome extension will allow you to hide toxic comments, making the online experience a much more palatable one. With the new extension named Tune, people can monitor abusive comments through several websites and posts easily.

Developed by Alphabet's Jigsaw, "Tune's Perspective AI learns to flag negative comments from thousands of people labelling millions of posts as spam, harassment or obscene content". However, there is now a Chrome plugin by the name of Tune, and it's created to help adjust the frequency of an online conversation.

Far from just searching for offending keywords and blocking comments that way, Tune's clever solution uses machine learning models to let people set a "volume" on popular sites like YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.

With the Tune Chrome extension, you can choose to turn all toxicity off (called "zen mode") or experiment with different settings to find one that works for you.

"The machine learning powering Tune is experimental", say the developers. It still misses some toxic comments and incorrectly hides some non-toxic comments.

"We hope that Tune can inspire platforms and developers to explore viewership controls for readers and enable communities to join discussions without relying exclusively on comment moderation", wrote CJ Adams, Product Manager, Jigsaw, in the blog post. So when you use Tune, expect the experimental plugin to make mistakes every so often.
