Font to blur insulting phrases
Cyberbullying is a growing problem in today's increasingly plugged-in world, with one in four children reporting they've been harassed or bullied online.
A Finnish tech company is hoping to create a kinder virtual space with a font that covers profanity in text-editing software, such as Word or Outlook, with a blur.
Using machine learning, The Polite Type is also capable of spotting insulting phrases and replaces derogatory terms with inclusive language.
For example, "You are stupid" becomes "You are silly," while "I hate you" is changed to "I disagree with you".
