Situation: More and more trolls impact free speech online by either creating an artificial public opinion, enraging the crowd with hate comments or misleading us with fake news.
This must stop, as it is currently the biggest threat to free speech and the free internet. If we can not prevent artificial bots from manipulating public opinion the only way is to restrict the free, open and anonymous internet. To me that would be a horrible result as it is the foundation of tremendous innovation in so many areas.
Solution: Use an AI that checks all comments/posts on major social network platforms like facebook. The AI then does not prevent you from posting your opinion but identifies troll behavior as well as “fake stories” and displays the troll and fake probability KPI besides every post . This allows us to still share everything and don’t restrict free speech but gives readers an indication how trustworthy the source is. Furthermore when one clicks on the KPI number, it shows why the number is as it is e.g. a list of news sources pro and against the “fake story”.
How: Well trolls — use inflammatory statements to start a reaction — can be difficult for a human to detect, so solutions like IBM Personality Insights can indicate whether the sentiment is accurately judged depending on the commenter’s personality traits. It can then determine whether the message is ironic, sarcastic or deceptive.
Idea: This could actually be build as a Chrome Plugin for everyone to download even if facebook itself does not introduce such a KPI plugin.
What do you think is this a good idea?

As we age, mental and physical challenges do creep up. And we need assistance to stay healthy, mobile, and independent.
A combination of a trained AI and installed sensor platform in mock living room, kitchen, hospital room, and retail space.
- It can do everything from “see” someone who has fallen (and help them if they can’t get up)
- answer health-related questions, such as “what are symptoms of a stroke?”,
- Scan and monitor health data: read heart rate, heart rate variability, and breathing rate.
- How do people want to interact with a computer when they’re sick?
- What’s the most-effective way to connect this data to third parties, such as emergency medical services?
- Where do you store a robot in someone’s home?
- natural language processing
- Chat bot interface for Q&A,
- visual recognition technology (the systems eyes)
- are funneled and analyzed through a body of the system, e.g. a SoftBank Pepper robot connected to the cloud.
- IBM Multi-Purpose Eldercare Robot Assistant (IBM MERA )

- The sensor network built into the lab is connected to that same toolkit of technology. With sensors in the floor, walls, ceiling, and other objects, like wearables, this cognitive agent “collective” can learn patterns of how and when the elderly wake up in the morning, eat breakfast, exercise, or take medication — and offer verbal reminders to take a medication if they forget (or maybe change the light color for those who are hearing impaired). Some of this IBM Accessibility technology is already out in the real world, like the homes of some over-65 residents of Bolzano, Italy, where we’re testing solutions with local government to help their citizens live independently, longer.
• The digital workplace merges work and life — a virtual space with applications, services and information on demand. For users, this means access to the technology they need, when they need it, on whichever device they prefer to use.
• Employees expect their enterprise systems to be as engaging, exciting and intuitive as consumer devices. Technology research company Gartner calls this a shift from technology-literate people to people-literate technology.
• Companies now have more exquisitely detailed data about how their products and services are used than they ever had before, thanks to a vast network of sensors and advanced analytic tools.
• Cognitive systems can parse all that data and learn what employees need to do their job better — even if they don’t yet know it themselves. Cognitive systems will deliver the ability to visualize vast amounts of data, curated and analyzed, for a unique task and a unique user.
• The workplace of the future will embrace emerging new cognitive and analytic capabilities. These tools can provide insights into how employees engage most effectively, what the best technologies are for each task and for each individual, and help provide a seamless work environment — an environment that will help to attract and retain the best talent.
