Session Outline

Codon has built a content moderation system for a Swedish social media app. This talk will describe how we approached and overcame some of the many problems involved, such as scarce and heavily skewed data, concept drift and expectation management. The model, now two years old, is still live and continuously updated and we will also discuss how that is done.

Key Takeaways

  • Data augmentation for textual data
  • Metrics and expectation management
  • Prediction confidence estimation
