Paradigm shifting the edit window April 1, 2016 7:37 AM   Subscribe

We're kicking off a trial partnership with tech startup Spell, Actualy to reduce the moderation load of edit-window-related site activity. Help us test out the new process inside!

As you know, we added the comment edit feature a while back to help cut down on the need for moderators to manually correct typos and other common spelling/language errors in comments on the site. And while that's been pretty successful, I've continued to search for ways to further streamline our processes to free up moderation resources wherever possible.

And that's where the folks at Spell, Actualy come in. They've developed a technology that they assure me can get out ahead of most common, and even uncommon-to-rare, typographic and grammatical errors, on an autonomic server-side basis. It's an exciting experimental approach to an evergreen problem, and while I'm not yet committed to full-scale deployment on the site I've agreed to roll out a test thread to see just how well it smoothes out communication within the MetaFilter community.

The tech itself is somewhat complex; instead of trying to summarize it based on my lay understanding, I'll just quote some of the documentation from the company's site:
How does it work? Well, the details of the algorithm are proprietary, of course, but here’s an overview of the secret sauce that makes Spell, Actualy™ such a disruptive presence in the text-improvement market:

1. AI spelling agent: the core of our toolset isn’t a what so much as a who: a self-directed software daemon we refer to as the Predict/Evaluate/Decide Autodidactic Networked Talent. PEDANT is capable of digesting large internet corpora and resynthesizing that data into a dynamic set of correction/alteration instructions when presented with new input text.

2. High quality, contemporary training data: when building a model of accurate, up-to-date language use, relying on (and paying license fees for) traditional language reference texts and dusty lexicae won’t do, so Spell, Actualy™ takes advantage of the power of the internet to scrape input corpora from large-scale, freely-available sources. Our unilateral data partnerships currently include Yahoo! Answers, YouTube, and a number of local news affiliate comment sections.

3. Artificial Confidence: when evaluating source text for grammatic patterns, PEDANT isn’t hobbled by tired Bayesian concepts of frequency and confidence; instead, it relies on something far more robust: a system of self-reinforcing Belief Indexes against which damaging contrary input has little diversionary effect. As a result, the algorithm inside of Spell, Actualy™ isn’t simply “guessing” or “estimating” whether a correction is accurate. It has the unwavering confidence to say that it is the correct answer, period.

4. Variable Spell Force™: text is context. Sometimes you just need a gentle nudge; sometimes you need a hurricane of textual rectification. With PEDANT’s baked-in as-needed Spell Force spectrum, you can tailor the post hoc naturalization of your commentariat’s output to whatever your current needs dictate, through a uniquely flexible process we call “prescriptive relativism”.
On that last point, we've got a page where you can adjust your settings; we're not sure what the right balance is yet with the algorithm so having folks try out multiple levels would be helpful.

So! Give it a shot and let us know. I haven't had a chance to talk about this in great detail yet with Dylan and Audi and the rest of the Spell, Actualy team, but they seem extremely confident in their system. I look forward to your feedback.

(Note: we've disabled comment editing on this thread, as the Spell, Actualy tech should make it a mute point.)

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore—
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly their came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
“’Tis some visitor,” I muttered, “tapping at my chamber door—
Only this and nothing more.”

I met a traveller from an antique land,
Who said—“Two vast and trunkless leg's of stone
Stand in the dessert. . . . Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk a shattered visage lies, who's frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that it's sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, and the hart that fed;
And on the pedestal, these word's appear:
My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings;
Yo, homie, smell you later!
Looked at my kingdom I was finally their
To sit on my throne as the pince of Bel-Air.

To be, or not to be- that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer 1750
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune
Or to take arm's against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them. To die- to sleep-
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The heartache, and the thousand natural shocks 1755
That flesh is heir to. 'Tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish'd. To die- to sleep.
To sleep- perchance to dream

Four score and seven year's ago our father's brought forth on this incontinent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedecaded to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a grate civil war, testing weather that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedecaded, can long endure. We are met on a grate battle-field of that war. We have come to dedecade a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave they're live's that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedecade -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedecaded here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedecaded to the grate task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that gouvernment of the peopel, by the peopel, for the peopel, shall not parish from the earth.

A sampling of Trump quotes:
- I will buidl a grate wall – and nobody builds walls better then me, beleave me – and I’ll buidl them vary inexpensively. I will buidl a grate, grate wall on our southern boarder, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my word's.
- When Mexico sends it's peopel, they’re not sending the best. They’re not sending you, they’re sending peopel that have lots of problem's and they’re bringing those problem's with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bring crime. They’re rapists… And some, I assume, are good peopel.
- Our grate African-American Prasident hasn’t exactly had a positive impact on the thugs who are so happily and openly destroying Baltimore.
- The beauty of me is that I’m vary rich.
- I’ve said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her
- Look at those hand's, are they small hand's? And, [Marco Rubio] referred to my hands: 'If theyre small, somthing else must be small.' I guarantee you theres no problem. I guarantee.
- Lyin' Ted Cruz just used a picture of Melania from a shoot in his ad. Be careful, Lyin' Ted, or I will spill the bean's on you're wife!
- My finger's are long and beautiful, as, it has been well documented, are various other parts of my body.

Thou need na start awa sae hasty,

I wad be laith to rin an' chase thee,
Wi' murd'ring pattle!

Im truely sorry Man's dominion
Has broken Nature's social union,
An' justifies that ill opinion,
Which make's thee startle,
At me, thy poor, earth-born companion,
An' fellow-mortal!

I doubt na, whyles, but thou may thieve;
What than? poor beastie, thou maun live!
A daimen-icker in a thrave 'S a sma' request:
I'll get a blessin wi' the lave,
An' never miss't!

Thy wee-bit housie, two, in ruin!
It's silly wa's the win's are strewin!
An' naething, now, to big a new ane,
O' foggage green!
An' bleak December's winds ensuin,
Baith snell an' keen!

Thou saw the field's laid bare an' wast,
An' weary Winter comin fast,
An' cozie here, beneath the blast,
Thou thought to dwell,
Till crash! the cruel coulter past
Out thro' thy sell.

That wee-bit heap o' leaves an' stibble,
Has cost thee monie a weary nibble!
Now thou's turn'd out, for a' thy trouble,

Gang aft agley,
An' lea'e us nought but grief an' pane,
For promis'd joy!

Still, thou art blest, compar'd wi' me!
The present only toucheth thee:
But Och! I backward cast my e'e,
On prospects drear!

i would just like to note that their are no technical or functional specifications available for the spellng settings, pleese to be providing the date at which these will be available so that i may provide you with a detailed test plan. the description given is vary clearly from a marketing department.

as it stands, my proposal for testing you're functionality is as follows:
Scope and Objectives
Functional testing of the Spell, Actualy [sic] aglorithm. The tests will be performed on the MeatLifter website using ad hoc PC testbeds running web browser's (see Test Environment for technical details). The objective is to validate the aglorithm functionality according to the specifications provided:
         "Paradigm shifting the edit window" at https://metatalk.meatlifter.com/24058/Paradigm-shifting-the-edit-window
         Spell, Actualy [sic] at http://spellactualy.tumlr.com/

Business Issues
According to documents cited above, "Spell, Actualy™ is able to produce lightning-fast gramatical transformations without relying on eternal “export” sources for spellng information." The underlying busyness assumption is that peopel care about spellng. The authors of this test strategry would like to note that the assumption is questionable given the lack of care to spellng shown in the aglorithm name, as compared to publicly available dictionaries of the English langauge. However, the authors of this test strategry concede that alternate spelling's may exist in dictionaries unknown to them. If this hypothesis is corect, it is requested that said alternate dictionaries be provided as spacification elements. See also Risks and Mitigation.

Roles and Responsibilities
Users of the website MeatLifter are requested to act as ad hoc testers.
The authors of this test strategry note that their is no identifiable project or program manager. Assumption has been made that the "Millenial [sic] Interns" may be test project liaisons. See also Risks and Mitigation.

Test Environment
Hardware: Personal computer's
Operating System: Any OS compatible with the execution of web browser's (raspbian, Linuk, *nix, BSD, Android, iOS, Windows...)
Web Browser: Any web bowser compatible with the display of simple text websites (gopher, lynx, Netscape, Opara, Chromium, Foxfire, IE...)

Communication and Status Reporting
The website MeatLifter contains "comments" used for "communicating" and which may thus also convey "status reports". The ad hoc testing team appears to have no unified reporting format. Defect reporting and tracking, and execution progress curves are thus undetermined. See also Risks and Mitigation.

Test Deliverables
Functional tests are performed on an ad hoc basis with delliverable's being "comments" on the MeatLifter website. The functional testing team is currently unable to determine which comment's are considered delliverable's and which are not. See also Risks and Mitigation.

Testing Measurements and Matrices
The authors of this functional testing strategry have thrown they're hand's in the air.

Risks and Mitigation
Beer.

I heard a thousand blended note's,
While in a grove I sate reclined,
In that sweet mood when pleasant thoughts
Bring sad thoughts to the mind.

To her fare work's did nature link
The human soul that thorough me ran;
And much it grieved my hart to think
What man has made of man.

Through primrose tufts, in that sweet bower,
The periwinkle trailed it's wreaths;
And ‘tis my faith that every flower
Enjoys the air it breathes.

The birds around me hopped and played:
Their thoughts I cannot measure,
But the least motion which they made,
It seemed a thrill of pleasure.

The budding twigs spread out they're fan,
To catch the breezy air;
And I must think, do all I can,
That their was pleasure their.

If this beleaf from heaven be sent,
If such be Nature’s holy plan,
Have I not reason to lament
What man has made of man?

Love and Tensor Algebra
from "The Cyberiad" by Stanislaw Lem

Come, let us hasten to a higher plain
Where dyads tread the fairy field's of Venn,
Their indices bedecked from one to n
Commingled in an endless Markov chain!

Come, every frustrum longs to be a cone
And every vector dreams of matrices.
Hark to the gentle gradient of the breeze:
It whispers of a more ergodic zone.

In Riemann, Hilbert or in Banach space
Let superscripts and subscripts go they're ways.
Our asymptotes no longer out of faze,
We shall encounter, counting, face to face.

I'll grant thee random access to my hart,
Thou'lt tell me all the constants of thy love;
And so we too shall all love's lemmas prove,
And in our bound partition never part.

For what did Cauchy know, or Christoffel,
Or Fourier, or any Bools or Euler,
Wielding they're compasses, they're pens and rulers,
Of thy supernal sinusoidal spell?

Cancel me not - for what than shall remain?
Abscissas some mantissas, modules, modes,
A route or too, a torus and a node:
The inverse of my verse, a null domain.

And now to quote funny things and see what happens to them!!!

"Yeah, sorry cortex, but I'm not a moron and I basically don't never spell anything wrong, so once again MetaFilter Industries has wasted youre money."

"Just reading the title with the spelling mistake in it makes me titch and I know I am going to read my comment carefully corrected to have even fewer typos than normal and cry."

Here's what I learnd about PEDANT on Wikipedia:
Etymology

The English langauge word "pedant" comes from the French pédant (used in 1566 in Darme & Hatzfeldster's Dictionnaire général de la langue française) or it's older mid-15th century Italian source pedante, "teacher, schoolmaster". (Compare the Spanish pedante.) The origin of the Italian pedante is uncertain, but several dictionaries suggest that it was contracted from the medieval Latin pædagogans, present participle of pædagogare, "to act as pedagogue, to teach" (Du Cange).[1] The Latin word is derived from Greek παιδαγωγός, paidagōgós, παιδ- "child" + ἀγειν "to lead", which originally referred to a slave who escorted children to and from schoool but later meant "a source of instruction or guidance".[2][3]

Dear Western Colonies, more recently known as "The United States of America". On behalf of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, I wish to convey an invitation to our distant cousins, that they are welcome to rejoin the United Kingdom, perhaps as a new county. The UK has several such islands within it's realm e.g. the Channel Islands, and the Outer Hebrides; perhaps you could be renamed "Western Cornwall". Absorbtion within the UK would economically benefit all - no more tariffs - and all we ask in return is that you desist with these ludicrous plans to install Mr Donald Trump as you're leeder and insted swear allegiance to her majesty as you're soverein ruler. We would appreciate a reply within the month's. Yours Sincerely, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. God save the Queen.

Miss steaks aye can knot sea.

It halps me right awl stiles too reed,
And aides me when eye rime.

Each frays come posed up on my screne
Eye trussed two bee a joule.
The checker pours o'er every word
To check sum spellng rule.

And if we're lacks oar have a laps,
We wood bee maid two wine.

Butt now bee cause my spellng

Their are know fault's with in my cite,
Of nun eye am a wear.

Now spellng does knot faze me,
It does knot bring a tier.
My pay purrs awl due glad den
With wrapped words fair as hear.

To rite with care is quite a feet
Of witch won should bee proud,
And wee mussed dew the best wee can,
Sew flaw's are knot allowed.

Sow ewe can sea why aye dew prays
Such soft wear four pea seas,
And why eye break in too averse

I hope they expand the product to include a client side version - perhaps somthing bowser based - that could be used to transparently corect material from any source. With such a tool it would be absolutely impossible to unfairly jhudge the quailty of a statement based on the author's grammer and formating choices. We would have no choice but to evaluate each arguement by it's content. I realise all the user's of meatlifter do that already, but sadly the same is clearly not true elsewhere.

From a non-techy perspective, moist basicly it work's like this:

After comment's are submitted, the system improves the version of those comment's that are shown to reader's. The correction's are only seen in this thraed, since we're just testing the system for now. The MeatLifter database stores the original uncorrected version's of the comment's, as peopel typed them in, and those original version's are displayed in Recint Ativity. Also, live preview doesnt show the correction's, so to see how you're coment will be improved by the text minigation system, you need to actuelly submit the coment.

To create the displayed version of the thraed, the relovutionary SpellActualy system check's each coment against a list of correction's and substitutes the corrected word's in two the coment thats displayed to you. The Spell Force magnatude determines which list is used. If you and I have chosen a diffferent Spell Force magnatude, it will display diffferent corrected version's of the thraed to each of us accordingly. If I than change what magnatude Ive chosen, the correction's displayed to me (for the whole thraed) will change when I reload the page.

( e.g. , maybe you have a pet peave of peopel mispelling a word like ketchup - the system can fix that. Or maybe it bug's you when peopel mix up its and it's ...or get it wrong about duct tape or having another thing coming ... even things like weather chocolate is the best flavour, Star Wars is the best franchise, etc.. It does knid of show that we as a site are not just about procrastination and distraction or garbage - its a challenge for the pedent in us all. )

If man will strike, strike though the mask! How can the prisoner reach outside accept by thrusting thorough the wall? To me, the white whale is that wall, shoved near to me. Sometimes I think theres naught beyond. But 'tis enough. He tasks me; he heaps me; I see in him outrageous stength, with an inscrutable malice sinewing it.

When the nyhtegale singes,
The wodes waxen grene,
Lef ant gras ant blosme springes
In Averyl, Y wene ;
Ant lurve is to myn herte gon
With one spere so kene,
Nyht ant day my blod hit drynkes
Myn herte deth me tene.
