Badwords Detection API

You have always heard about the term that we are now living in a "Global Village". This is true in the sense that we have access to everything via the Internet. We can easily communicate with anyone around the globe without any trouble.

So, we are kind of lucky to have lived in this internet era. Because everything is in our access. We can discuss any idea from our couch. But today's world also has some cons. 

The internet and the global community are facing some of the worst issues like hacking, racism, cyberbullying, harassment, etc. One of the issues that we all must have gone through is the use of hate speech and bad words in the comments over the internet. And we here to solve this problem by developing an API that automatically detects the bad words and censors them from the comments.

Example of Bad Words Detection API

First of all, let's see how this API works. We have used the list of bad words that came into the category of profanity, swear, and abuse.

Whenever someone uses these bad words in a comment, our Bad Words Detection API automatically detects those words and censor them.

Below is an example of how the Bad Words Detection API works:

When someone does the comment below;

"It's not working! A paid a bunch of money to this shit. It's too far from just boiling water! It's totally bullshit! It's a fucking kettle, how hard to boil fucking water man!"

API would return something like this:

”It's not working! A paid a bunch of money to this . It's too far from just boiling water! It's totally bull! It's a kettle, how hard to boil water man!"

You can visit Bad Words Detection API page to know more about how this actually works and see the live demo.
