The Institute for Rebooting Social Media welcomes Dave Willner for a talk on the promises and perils that foundation models present for the field of content moderation.

The rise of increasingly powerful foundation models – particularly large language models (LLMs) and large multimodal models (LMMs) – will fundamentally transform the practice of content moderation.  This is true both because of the novel risks and features of the models themselves, as has been much discussed, and because of the less explored ways in which these models can and will be used to solve previously intractable problems in moderation.  While the exact contours of the new terrain of moderation have not yet fully come in to view, it is possible to anticipate the changes we will see by pairing a thorough understanding of the core challenges of scaled content moderation with the core advantages provided by foundation models.
