In Russia, a system has been developed that will allow you to check content for prohibited information. The system is intended for the media, politicians and bloggers. It will help to avoid administrative and criminal liability for information published before the ban. The project was presented at the intensive “Archipelago 2121”.
The authors of the project noted that the system of legislation is constantly evolving, and information may become prohibited over time. We are talking about old posts, publications on social networks and articles that were written a long time ago, and now may carry risks of administrative and criminal liability for the author, the press service of the National Technological Initiative (NTI) told Izvestia.
To solve the problem, a team of students from Ulyanovsk State Technical University developed Content Checker. The service can download content for a certain period and check it for prohibited information in accordance with the law. Based on the results of the check, a report with problem publications will be issued. They will be offered to delete or edit.
The check works on the basis of graphematic analysis. It will take into account more than 5 thousand linguistic rules. The accuracy of the system is 95%.
A prototype of the service has now been developed. The cost of the check has not yet been disclosed. The creators plan to conclude the first contracts for the use of the service in the fall. Estimated annual revenue – 50 million rubles per year.
According to the developers, the project has no direct analogues and competitors in Russia.
“In the future, we can easily supplement it with the algorithm with checks for profanity, insults to the feelings of believers, anti-Semitism and other nationalisms. The filtering list is open and can be configured for various customer requests, ”said one of the creators Denis Efremov.
Earlier, on July 22, it became known that the magistrate of the judicial district No. 422 of the Tagansky district of Moscow again fined Facebook and Telegram for not deleting information prohibited by Russian law. Facebook was fined 6 million rubles, and the messenger 11 million.
