Automatic for the People: Pandemic-fueled rush to robo-moderation will be disastrous – there must be oversight


Analysis The Electronic Frontier Foundation on Thursday warned that the consequences of the novel coronavirus pandemic – staff cuts, budget cuts, and lack of access to on-site content review systems, among others – have led tech companies to focus even more resources on barely functional moderation systems. Technology platforms have tended to favor automated content moderation over human editorial oversight. The results of such algorithmic policing have been imperfect but, more importantly to those implementing these systems, inexpensive compared to salaried employees or underpaid contractors. Though most of the major tech companies involved in overseeing user-generated posts have been celebrating machine learning for years now, the EFF frets that AI-driven moderation has been talked up a bit too much lately. The advocacy group points to recent public statements by Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube that cite increased reliance on automated tools for content moderation.

Doctors using artificial intelligence to track coronavirus outbreak


With novel coronavirus spreading throughout the United States, researchers are turning to social media and artificial intelligence to track the virus as it spreads. A team headquartered at Boston Children's Hospital is implementing machine learning to scour through social posts, news reports, data from official public health channels and information supplied by doctors for warning signs that the virus is taking hold in locations outside of China. "There's incredible data that's locked away in various tools like online news sites, social media, crowdsourcing, data sources, that you wouldn't think of that would be used for public health," said Dr. John Brownstein, chief innovation officer at Boston Children's Hospital. "But actually they have incredible amounts of information that you wouldn't find in any sort of traditional government system." More than 95,000 people around the world have been infected by the outbreak of novel coronavirus, and more than 3,200 have died -- most in China.

Tokyo firm urges caution against surge in coronavirus-related disinformation on April Fools' Day

The Japan Times

A Tokyo-based risk management firm is cautioning against a potential surge in coronavirus-related disinformation on April Fools' Day, alarmed by the recent spread of what it perceives to be baseless rumors on social media that the government is secretly preparing for the start of a Tokyo lockdown that day. Unsubstantiated rumors pertaining to COVID-19 have been swirling online for months, but gossip with a more urgent tone and more fear-mongering in nature has emerged in recent days, making digital literacy against false rumors more important than ever, according to Tokyo-based Spectee Inc. The firm says it uses cutting-edge artificial intelligence to monitor, collect and analyze the deluge of online information. "Previously, the most common types of coronavirus-related misinformation and disinformation we would see were primarily medical and health-related, as in, 'granite has the power to kill the virus,' or'drinking lukewarm water is effective against the virus,'" said Kenjiro Murakami, head of Spectee. But as the number of COVID-19 cases has risen and the prospect of a citywide lockdown -- floated by Tokyo Gov. Yuriko Koike as a possibility -- loomed large over Japan last week, Murakami said the firm detected a rise in rumors over the weekend that go far beyond misguided health tips.
