I see arguments on several forums I visit.  Often the administrators fail to give a fair and a secular resolution to the situation.

do you think AI will moderate soon?

probably depends on what the administrators do and how they do it


Counting down the days until 2050: 12,499 Humanity = 0.72 on the Kardashev scale
Counting down the days until 2100: 30,761
Counting down the days until 3000: 359,479

I think this could work. Perhaps just automatic banning by detecting bad words or something?

Nope that DOES NOT work, key words are nothing. They need context. 

Take, for example, an AI bot that detects key words like kill, murder, porn, suicide, etc - these phrases would get banned if it doesn't take into account context:

I would kill for a Nexus 5 right now

 

GTA5 is a game about murder

 

They invented porn in your mind!

 

The NSA should commit suicide right now

AI-moderator? No, spare me god, i'm strongly against this. At least, not before than AI will understand the very basics of human psychology and behavior. For human moderator, it will be relatively easy to understand who is troll, or fanatic or just a dumb hater, an so on... for AI, our post will be nothing more than set of symbols.

Yes, it will work... but how? Imagine a crafty troll, who formally respect all the rules, but can easily bring you to madness & make you post something like "get the fuck out, damn asshole" ...and voila, YOU will be banned, and troll will continue his dirty work :)

I'm with PhoenixRu on this. AI moderation on forums would literally scare the living daylights out of me. :(

I don't think the technology is ready for this, and it won't be for some time.

Much later in the future, maybe. And ...what the others said about keywords and the issue about context and stuff.


"All scientific advancement due to intellegence overcoming, compensating, for limitations. Can't carry a load, so invent wheel. Can't catch food, so invent spear. Limitations. No limitations, no advancement. No advancement, culture stagnates. Works other way too. Advancement before culture is ready. Disastrous."

There's definitely truth in that...

Yep, such as someone saying: "Al-Qaeda is wrong, bad, and evil!" Only to get banned from this forum as a result of this statement. Also, this is not to mention non-native speakers of English (such as myself) who could sometimes/occasionally incorrectly/accidentally/unintentionally say something which could sound extremely bad.

^ Oh yes, I know about that. Sometimes, it sounds right in my head, but for a native speaker, it's terrible. When you have no idea about all the little nuances in the language and typical sayings, you're screwed should the keyword-filter be the only thing that stands between you and your ban.

Yeah, I might have occasionally experienced this problem as well as a non-native English speaker.

 

Heck, even on this forum, I remember how initially PhoenixRu got a lot of criticism thrown at him for what he said about public acceptance of homosexuality despite the fact that what these other people here thought that he meant to say was different than what he actually meant to say.

By the time the technology exists, I don't even think forums will exist in the same way they do today. There was a topic a while back that mentioned FutureTimeline evolving into some sort of VR forum, where we'd be able to interact by using avatars, threads would be lounge rooms or whatever where we sat around and discussed a particular topic, etc. I can't think of how AI would be implemented into this.

With some of the news coming out don't be surprise if it is banned.

How about removal of bad words and attacks on other members.

 

Notifying the mods when it happens.

No they will not. They will shortly, however, spam the willpower from actual moderators and administrators away. If anyone has paid attention recently, software exists that can beat Captcha. It's become increasingly difficult for board owners to prevent non-human (or automated accounts) from joining. If this software that beats captcha gets out, watch out for limitless accounts with legitimate emails from trusted domains like Gmail, etc. It's not out of the realm of AI to start forming grammatically correct sentences and post troll paragraphs around. It is however, far, far, from making judgement calls such as moderation. When such decision making skill is broken, the turing test will be broken shortly after.

That captchas are not safe is nothing new, there are at least half a dozen tools that can beat captchas...

To be honest, I actually think it would be a good idea, since A.I. would punish all forum members fairly, and not use double standards to punish some without punishing others.

Okay, how about I rephrase that. What if it was able to detect bad phrases? It can't be that difficult, surely.

Well for a start, we could develop an AI to detect those annoying spambots that keep registering on here and posting nonsense titled topics with a long list of youtube links to sports games lol
