    Meh it's all a bit PR-ey. Anti bullying technology can't really exist without also heavily compromising people's privacy. Especially difficult when there are laws which (rightly) restrict how you handle data of 13 year olds and younger.

    Maybe anti-harrasment AI in the future. But I'm sure the bean counters of this world wouldn't hesitate trying to also monetize the data used by such a thing. Because hey why help society when you can make a buck.

    Also, people need to grow thicker skin.

    The culture of increasing whining and bitching about how someone's been nasty is entirely counterproductive.

    Seems like a waste of time hear in the UK, come the end of the year we're going to be able to catch online bullies and trolls using the investigatory powers bill.

    Intel partnering with vox media to harass people and attack privacy is of course a good reason to look at what AMD has available in the CPU segment these days.
    And I almost gave up on AMD, how quickly those things can change eh.

    The worst thing about this, is that in an attempt to display their veil of social responsibility, Intel are trying to move the problem of monitoring, raising, educating and protecting children from parents over to technologists. As always its the parents that want the whole world to revolve around their kids. Anything that might negatively affect their precious little Jimmy is everyone else's problem because its definitely not the problem of the parents. What on earth programmers, admins, architects, computer scientists and engineers know about the social issues surrounding bullying is anyone's guess.

    Of course harassment happens to adults as well. Many a Youtuber has a tail to tell about the hate, what it does to them and so on. (although one wonders how old the majority of haters are on youtube, twitter etc). As always the answers (according to this hackathon) are more tools to ban, block and coerce. It's never engage, teach and learn.

    The reason the internet is such a cesspool of hate, is because there are no social pressures and cues to keep people in-line like there are in real life. It's such a cesspool because its a true reflection of humanity. It's because people are essentially, a bunch of *******s. That's one problem you can't program around.

    I'll be the one to point it out, then. ;)

    I also agree. People need to grow a thicker skin and just learn to use the nice, red cross. Close it if you're offended! It's not difficult.
