The [New York] Times is Partnering with Jigsaw to Expand Comment Capabilities
The New York Times is working together with Jigsaw, a
technology incubator at Alphabet, Google's parent company, to
improve and expand its comments section. Through the project,
The Times's Community desk will be able to expand comments to
more articles on NYTimes.com and increase the speed at which
comments are reviewed.

I am *very* hopeful for these new Jigsaw projects on troll management
and comment moderation to bear significant real fruit. I've long
figured that the mixed AI/human approach was the only way to scale but
until now the resources to really apply such techniques didn't exist
in a practical way. The challenges will be enormous, because the
intersection of moderation with perceived censorship, and the obvious
ramifications for submitted content management in our toxic political
atmosphere, will require walking a real technical and policy
tightrope. Fascinating and important.

I have consulted to Google, but I am not currently
doing so -- my opinions expressed here are mine alone.

The correct term is "Internet" NOT "internet" -- please don't
fall into the trap of using the latter. It's just plain wrong!
