An ongoing collection of algorithmic censorship resistance tactics (Work in Progress)
Revolution are created by our ability to imagine new worlds and vocabularies. From hashtags and political slogans, words can create new worlds. Yet online, language has also become a form of data, used to create machine learning systems for profit, and it has also become an arena for automated censorship and moderation. Algorithmic censorship has led to a surge of creativity as online netizens scramble to bypass the machine, through the creative use of homophones to images and new characters that bypass OCR (optical character recognition).
