The World Economic Forum has unveiled new guidelines designed to crack down on free speech online.

As The Daily Wire reports:


The World Economic Forum shared a report last week outlining a plan to mitigate “the dark world of online harm” by using human and artificial intelligence to censor bad actors who produce and promote child abuse, disinformation, and hate speech.

Inbal Goldberger, vice president of Trust and Safety at ActiveFence, a company that detects malicious online content, published an op-ed on the global organization’s website, offering a solution to online abuse. Such solutions would enable a blend of AI and so-called “subject matter experts” to “detect nuanced, novel online abuses at scale, before they reach mainstream platforms.”

Goldberger said an intelligence-fueled approach to content moderation would work by allowing human and AI teams to flag or remove high risk-items after transmitting millions of sources through training sets.

Between the online child pornography problem and the push to silence disinformation and hate speech, many have argued the automated censorship idea shared by the Davos-based elite group could produce a slippery slope of more authoritarianism.

Will the World Economic Forum’s guidelines lead to a world with less hate speech, or more tyranny? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Do you know what it’s like to have no voice? People in communist countries can speak no evil, thus, evil will prevail.
