Discord snaps up anti-harassment AI developer Sentropy

Discord has bought up Sentropy, a software firm that develops AI-driven tools meant to fight online harassment.

Newsbrief: Discord has bought up Sentropy, a software developer that creates artificial intelligence-driven tools designed to combat online harassment.

In a Medium post from Sentropy CEO John Redgrave, the company founder writes that he’s been impressed by Discord’s “deep commitment to safety,” and that the company will continue to be focused on “fighting hate and abuse on the internet.”

“Our team’s focus will be on helping Discord expand and evolve its [Trust and Safety] capabilities,” he writes.  “We are also inspired by Discord’s commitment to knowledge-sharing and capability-building in the content moderation space, as exemplified by their Moderator Academy.”

Redgrave writes that the company’s “Detect” and “Defend” products offered to other companies will remain online until September 30th, 2021. Its “Protect” product was shut off on July 1st in advance of this acquisition.
