Fascinating, if it works.

Hate speech online can dampen anyones gaming experience. And while this doesnt solve the problem, Intel is coming up with ways to ease our exposure to it. Introducing Bleep, an AI-powered program that censors out slurs from voice chat before you even hear them.

Showcased during a GDC talk last month (brought to our attention by PCMag), Intels Bleep is a new system that allows user to filter out harsh words from their chat, covering a variety of different topics.



While they didnt provide a demonstration, they did show off the interface. From this we can parse out what it can do. Each with a various degree of severity, users can filter out racism, ableism, body shaming, LGBT-related slurs, white nationalism, and more.

The system, as far as we understand it, will convert speech to text, read the text, and censor out the audio of any offensive words that match the criteria. Supposedly, it will do all of this in near-real-time.

Intel doesnt think this will solve the issues this relates to, but they think itll at least help people. Intel Vice President Roger Chandler had this to say.

While we recognize solutions like Bleep dont erase the problem, we believe its the step in the right direction, giving gamers a tool to control their experience.


The project is still in development, but Intel is indicating that a beta launch for the program will be coming soon. Should this happen, expect it to be available for PCs sporting select Intel CPUs.
