In an unprecedented collaboration between Code for Israel, a volunteer movement dedicated to Israeli high-tech endeavors, and Final, an Israeli technology company, the employees of Final have voluntarily devised a specialized algorithm for the non-profit organization Fighting Online Antisemitism (FOA).
Utilizing an external interface facilitated by Cyabra, an entity that coordinates content across various online platforms, the innovative algorithm enables efficient and instantaneous monitoring of antisemitic expressions within the network, thereby enhancing the capacity to report and remove such posts.
Presently, the algorithm is being implemented within FOA’s systems, empowering its trained volunteers to monitor, report, and eliminate nearly tenfold more instances of online antisemitism. This distinctive system automatically aggregates content through an external interface, and leveraging the power of artificial intelligence (AI), each post undergoes assessment to determine its degree of antisemitic potential.
The content identified as most heavily influenced by antisemitism is then transmitted to FOA’s Israeli and international volunteers for further examination, subsequently prompting them to report the offensive content to various social media networks, including Facebook, TikTok, and Instagram, accompanied by an urgent request for its removal.
As a consequence of this algorithmic innovation, volunteers gain access to a greater number of posts in less time, heightening their ability to report offensive content. Ultimately, the system will provide insights into the actual percentage of platforms from which content has been eradicated, information that will be shared with social platforms, researchers, and the wider public.
