Spell Check for hate

One of the inspirations for Empath was a comment from Eric Schmidt (Chairman of Google) that the internet needs a ‘spell check for hate’. With rates of cyber bullying on the rise (e.g. see this article about increasing rates of cyber bullying affecting public servants), tools that help filter out inappropriate messages are vital for preserving workplace harmony.

We hope that our range of email and social media filters can help people to go on a ‘negativity diet’ and also catch themselves before they send written communication that they will regret.
