Chinese researchers say they’ve developed an AI text censor that is 91% accurate

They claim it could be useful to ‘identify and filter sensitive information from online news media’. China’s Internet is tightly controlled and the government relies on a huge army of censors to vet content. — SCMP

A research team in China claims to have developed a text censor that can filter “harmful information” on the Internet with unprecedented accuracy using artificial intelligence.

Traditional machine censors rely mainly on keywords to do this and struggle to achieve 70% accuracy, while AI technology – which needs to be trained by humans – has taken that to about 80% in recent years.
