What if technology could help improve conversations online?

A new API for hosting conversations, with machine learning tech that’ll do things like help flag potentially harmful comments before they’re posted

Pespective [perspectiveapi] is an API that makes it easier to host better conversations. The API uses machine learning models to score the perceived impact a comment might have on a conversation. Developers and publishers can use this score to give realtime feedback to commenters or help moderators do their job, or allow readers to more easily find relevant information, as illustrated in two experiments below. We’ll be releasing more machine learning models later in the year, but our first model identifies whether a comment could be perceived as “toxic" to a discussion.
