Polygon reports Fortnight recently removed a fan-submitted scene after gamers complained it depicted suicide. While the creator denies claim and defends the submission, Fortnite responded, “This creator’s content was removed from the Block because it did not adhere to our content creation guidelines.”
Human moderators have a tough job. Every day they sift through offensive materials and make judgement calls. While these people have the best of intensions, humans are known to be biased and inconsistent in their judgements. One day a piece of material doesn’t look bad, but next day it looks terrible. Moderators powered by an AI solution could become more effective, efficient and consistent over time.
