DeepText - Instagram tests out AI bullying deterrent

Recommended Posts

In the past responsible parents used to teach their kids values. Sadly now we need an AI due to the lack of responsible parents.

It's not essential, but neither is being able to hear or speak.  Once you start putting impediments into what is essential a large part of developmental communication in society you start to isolate from the per group.  And we are not talking about just Instagram, we are talking about bullying and harassment which crosses all social media platforms, which means the isolation is from all platforms not just one.

 

And yes I did just associate the importance of being able to socialize in mainstream society to being able to speak, it is very crucial in development.

 

https://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/140/Supplement_2/S67

 

This underpins my experiences working with teenagers in developmental years and the effects social media has.  It also indicates the extent to which it is a part of social engagement.  If you take that away you literally take away a huge component of social engagement.

Social engagement in the form of social media is superficial at best and detrimental at worst. You don't need to use it to have meaningful interactions with your peers contrary to popular belief. If anything it becomes harder because it's much less productive than most other forms of interactions you can have. Is social media maybe easier to get social engagement on? Probably yes but I would argue it is a lazy way out and isn't helpful in the long run.

You aren't even going to read the link I provided?  Like it or not social media is as much a part of social development now as face to face interaction.

 

Quote

By and large, extant research has found that youth use social media in the service of critical adolescent developmental tasks, such as identity development, aspirational development, and peer engagement.4,8 As adolescents seek intimacy with their peers and strive for autonomy, their online environments frequently reflect their off-line lives.9 In contrast to early online applications, which were seen as refuges from real life,10 today’s online environments reflect, complement, and reinforce off-line relationships, practices, and processes

 

They are intertwined and by removing online social participation you are handicapping the child's development to half of what their peers experience.  It also might interest you to know that majority of developmental learning is peer based.  This means children develop and become successful learning how to be a person in reality from their friends and social networks.  This happens digitally and in person.   IF you cut a child off from half of those interactions you start to limit their ability to develop as part of their community. 
 

It is noted by many studies that social experience plays an important roll in academic success,  especially in environments where communication and the ability to collaborate exist.  Social media actually plays quite strongly into social collaboration.

of ways they are expected to talk and interact in joint educational activity.

EDIT: just one more afterthought,  if social media only played such a superficial role on social communication/development then why would bullying become such a huge problem?  If it were possible for people to simply ignore the bully or stop using the platform then that's what would have happened naturally.

Just because you don't find it funny doesn't mean the joke isn't funny for others. Stop trying to police others becaue you specifically got offended by something. Different strokes for different folks. I joke about everything, because I enjoy taking humour to its limits. I find it funny. I shouldn't be banned from doing so just because YOU got offended by it.

And by the same token if someone wants to call you out for something they consider to be dumb,  why should you get to police what they have to say?  The street is two way.

Say what you want, don't stop me from saying what I want because you find it offensive. I have a right to joke, you have a right to tell me you don't like it and I have a right to tell you go f yourself if I feel like it on top of it all.

Private companies that operate virtual monopolies on modern communication trying to tell you what you can and cannot say, what "may be" inappropriate or suggesting you're out of line is precisely what stop me from joking and you from telling me you think they're not funny.

Once you start censoring selectively to cater to a group of people, you'll get more groups asking for same treatment, ending up with UK Police proactively scanning twitter for "hate incidents", whatever they are or Canadian universities bringing a student to tears during a disciplinary meeting because she played a YT video they didn't agree with.

The street is two way indeed and let's keep it that way.

excellent, so how do you draw a line between a joke and being a fuckwit?  Largely this conversation is not about censoring people or extreme left wing politics trying to strong arm people from free thought. It's just about people not being dicks unnecessarily.  There is no link between suggesting people don't say insulting things and extreme censorship.

They're in too deep. Practically impossible to make them see their cognitive dissonance. Being nice to one another isn't "cool" these days. You make a comment about it and people accuse you of censoring. 

 

Gonna digress a bit here, but I genuinely think people should spend 1 year in Japan to get a different perspective on how the world works. Harmony, humility and being good to others regardless of how close/distant you are is the minimum. The West can't seem to figure that part out yet.

Words on a screen cannot hurt you unless you have a weak mind. Cyberbullying is 100% about weakness. About people who are so weak they break down into tears over some pixels. They don't have to break down into tears, they can become strong, they can gain the ability to choose to not care.

Do you want this forum to bully you to help you grow stronger?

No one has ever been able to sustain harassment for a long period of time without suffering from it, even the strongest of us all. It has been an increasing pattern in society and it's one of the reason unhappiness is paramount in our societies.

You do know that you only have rights because other people accept those rights? If you're a dick to people, those people don't have any obligations to grant you the rights you feel entitled to, so why should they?

People should start to learn that what they think their rights are figure of their imagination.

Go read philosophy book about the societal construction. One the easier one on that would be Hobbes' Leviathan, and you'll understand that you don't have those "rights" you think you are as long as others recognise them.

In that case it's not about censoring, it's about punishing people who make living together impossible.

People don't "grant" me shit. Government and law dictates what I can and cannot do. People have no right to shut me down because they don't agree with what I say.

You can philosophy your point across all you want, but this is absolutely about censorship, it snowballed in multiple cases throughout history, but I guess they just didn't implement it properly.

Different people handle different situations differently. I don't care about people being dicks to me on the net, becuase it's the net. I've experienced what falls under "cyber bullying" plenty of times, but I have no problems recognising that some weirdo from a forum cannot harm me with his words, because I've faced these multiple times and was taught how to react to these things.

Back to your great plan of punishing anyone that wrong-thinks:

Who decides what's offensive?

Who decides what the punishment is? You? The offended? "AI"?

What qualifies "living together impossible"? Is life really impossible if someone on instagram tells you you look like shit?

Internet is already shifted to nothing but positive feedback loops, even this forum lost the dislike button. Reality isn't like that. And trying to treat (as some mentioned here) half of people's lifes as some weird bubble where no disagreement can happen and everyone is only Black Mirroring 5-star reviews up each others asses to get a better social score won't work.

We're actively creating a generation of perpetually depressed, self-harming, mentally-disordered weak humans that can't handle a word of criticism, opposite views or actual bullying, precisely because we're trying the impossible of shielding people from all of these things, rather than teaching them how to face them and deal with them.

Why is there discussion about Instagram on LTT? Just RMA if its not working as advertised.


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

Again I don't see how it makes a difference. People got by just fine before social media and developed just fine and I would argue often times much better than people today. Social media is a cancer that is destroying the mental health of children. Rates of anxiety depression and suicide has increased dramatically in teenagers since the creation of social media

 You want to say that staying away from social media would cripple one's social development but I would argue that using it is far more detrimental to one's mental health than any sort of benefit it might have. The use of social media by children and teenagers is setting them up for failure and it's sad to hear people say it's nessisary when it really isn't.

everyone responds differently to bullying and some people have it a lot easier to recover from it. this is a much deeper and more complicated than most people think.

You realize people have rights because the government protects them? It's like how a racist might not accept a black person's right to be served at a restaurant but that doesn't mean they don't have the right because under the law they are legally guaranteed that right. What someone thinks has literally bo bearing on a person's rights because they are clearly defined by law and not the thoughts and feelings of others. Now the thing about rights is that they allow someone to do something but that doesn't mean people have to like or accept their behavior.

IT: some people that being bombarded with abuse 24/7 is somehow good for you.

 

Cyber bullying is not something you can just ignore. Even in high school it's almost impossible to not be online, and the avenues for abuse are many and varied.

I disagree with you on people getting by "just fine". Are you telling me that everything was fine and dandy until social media came along? It wasn't. 

 

Despite the thread here being that you can just "ignore" cyberbullying, you state clearly that its use is dramatically effecting teenagers. While I fully support reduced usage, should we not help people to use it for its many possible positive uses instead of negative ones? That's what this bot is for.

 

---

 

I think it's also worth saying that teenagers today have a lot of anxiety not just because of petty high school arguments. Teenagers face great uncertainty in the job market and the future of the climate. Having someone you can't identify tell you they're going to kill you doesn't help at all, and it's not going to make you a better person.

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

You know people are assholes, especially teenagers. But if you know how to mentally dismiss them or roast them back without feeling bad, that solves all the problems for you whether platform has the glorious Ai keeping you safe or not. Not to mention how almost all platforms offer reporting, muting and blocking. just mute and let them bark into abyss. They won't even know no one is listening to their shit unlike when you block them.

That doesn't matter, it helps to be able to shake it off but you can't blame the victim for this. Plus, the victims are often also teens who don't necessarily have the same psychological resilience as an adult. If you've never been insecure about anything good for you, that doesn't give you the right to dismiss those who are and have a right to live their life without being harassed or bullied as much as anyone else. The AI is there to warn the bully that they might be banned for that sort of behavior and adds a small barrier to hitting that post button, which can make a difference; sometimes all it takes is to think twice about what you're doing to realize it's a bad idea.

Except these situations don't always exist in a vacuum. If you know the person in real life blocking them might mean you'll never hear the end of it at school or what have you. You'd have people like yourself making fun of you because you're "offended" and should "grow a thicker skin" and whoever is bullying you would feel even more inclined to tormenting you. Muting them might be a bit better but just having those comments under your posts, even if you don't directly see them, increases the social pressure on you among those you know irl who have seen them.

 

And honestly why is blocking or muting a more legitimate tool than warning potential bullies? These are all just band aids on a bigger problem, which is people acting like dipshits; if you can't address the problem at the core any addition that might make it better is a good thing. Shifting the blame on the victims is the least helpful thing you can do.
