i have been unable to stop laughing at this image for like 5 minutes
the context is that intel is making some kind of real-time voice chat censoring thing called bleep
do you think they got a bunch of people off mturk to have Heated Gaming Moments into the microphone for this
i have to wonder how the tuning works, because they just have some kind of model to detect each category where they gathered data on how offensive an audio segment is ('bitch' is probably pretty low down on the offensiveness spectrum for example)
but it's funny to imagine they have some kind of fucking. slur tier-list
@hierarchon On the one paw, hah! On the other, how in the heck is that even supposed to /work/. *stares*
@hierarchon If it's individual words, that makes sense! With things like "misogyny" I was for some reason thinking they were going to (try (and probably fail miserably) to) figure out when something being said was misogynistic or not.
@hierarchon turning a big dial that says "N-word" on it and constantly looking back at the audience for approval like a contestant on the price is right
@hierarchon i would like to hear some misogyny when i game. not all the misogyny, just some of it. to keep things spicy
@trysdyn i guess maaaaaybe if you're in a context where someone is saying a word in a way that trips the filter? idk
@trysdyn tbh it's probably a reasonable design (especially for things like name-calling where it's reasonable to just completely not care), it's just... incredibly funny
especially for stuff like N-WORD: ON
@hierarchon except they don't need precognition, just a list of popular Twitch streams, a list of things they're pretty sure aren't slurs, and time
@hierarchon i can't even begin to imagine the absolute galaxy brain smarts it takes to create a ui with settings like "Racism and Xenophobia: Some"
@hierarchon i have to assume this is meant to filter like, *incoming* voice chat, as opposed to a streamer running this to bleep out their own heated gaming moments, right
@fennecs but the mental image of twitch mandating this on all their big streamers to avoid more heated gaming moments is very funny
@hierarchon i could definitely see twitch going "so the real problem with bigotry is when you can hear the streamers say the bad word, right?"
