Rails 5.1.0 Beta 1

Rails 5.0 was released just some eight months ago, and now, some 3500 commits later, we’re already close to the next big release. And what release this version 5.1 is lining up to be!

Loving JavaScript

We’ve had a stormy, perhaps even contentious, relationship with JavaScript over the years. But that time is past.

Google Releases an AI Tool For Publishers To Spot and Weed Out Toxic Comments

Google today launched a new technology to help news organizations and online platforms identify and swiftly remove abusive comments on their websites. The technology, called Perspective, will review comments and score them based on how similar they are to comments people said were “toxic” or likely to make them leave a conversation. From a report on BBC: The search giant has developed something called Perspective, which it describes as a technology that uses machine learning to identify problematic comments. The software has been developed by Jigsaw, a division of Google with a mission to tackle online security dangers such as extremism and cyberbullying.
