Perspective is an API that makes it easier to host better conversations. The API uses machine learning models to score the perceived impact a comment might have on a conversation. Developers and publishers can use this score to give realtime feedback to commenters or help moderators do their job, or allow readers to more easily find relevant information, as illustrated in two experiments below. We’ll be releasing more machine learning models later in the year, but our first model identifies whether a comment could be perceived as “” to a discussion.
Here we’ve used Perspective to organize comments on three topics that are often difficult to discuss online. Use the slider to explore.
We created an experiment using Perspective to illustrate when comments might be perceived as “toxic” by others. Disagree with the result? Please let us know! It’s still early days and we will get a lot of things wrong.
