Yes, no more purchases for the Xbox division. Although this time it’s not a new studio or an established franchise. And thank goodness because if so, one more gives you something … The point is that this time it is the company Two HAt, which is mainly dedicated to moderating content with its own tools for 10 years.
Two Hat’s artificial intelligence tools allow them to detect potentially offensive comments and content
Welcome to Xbox, Two Hat
This acquisition improves Xbox Live as a whole; that is to say on all the platforms where it operates. And this is important because although the two companies have worked together for a long time, bots and nasty content on the web have intensified in recent years.
An important point of this operation is that the tools that will now be handed over to Microsoft, they can also detect usernames or harmful software that could damage the user’s network. At words by Dave McCarthy, Corporate Vice President, Xbox Product Services.
Two Hat’s technology has helped communities around the world on Xbox, Minecraftand MSN are more secure for users. This is thanks to its highly configurable technology, which allows the user to decide what they are comfortable with and what they are not comfortable with.
I’ve witnessed the impact they’ve had within Xbox, and we’re excited that this acquisition further accelerates our proprietary content moderation solutions for all games.
Two HAt services already offered to other companies will continue to be hosted under the Microsoft umbrella. But now the company will bring its technology to other products within Microsoft.
