Civility Score™

Overview

The Seekr Civility Score utilized in Seekr Align measures civility in podcast conversations using proprietary AI scoring models. The AI evaluates transcripts to detect attacks against individuals or groups and gauges the frequency and severity of attacks.

Seekr AI analyzes language, tone, and context to offer advertisers a nuanced assessment of content suitability. This allows brands to confidently place ads in environments that uphold their values and ensure a responsible, inclusive, and positive result.

It’s important to note that the Civility Score operates independently and is not impacted by GARM Risk detection.

What is an attack?

Personal Attacks

A personal attack refers to insulting language targeted at an individual or group instead of addressing the argument or subject at hand. This often includes insults or derogatory remarks that aim to demean or belittle the person rather than engage with their ideas or actions.

Personal attacks include but are not limited to:

  • Name-calling
  • Derogatory terms
  • Paraphrasing or quoting insults
  • Insinuating something insulting
  • Mocking through imitation
  • Threats or threatening language
  • Self-deprecation, but only when using offensive language

Personal Attack Examples

Transcript Explanation
Because the guy’s a scumbag. He is. He’s a gripping scumbag. Name-calling using a derogatory term
I know I’m a moron. Self-deprecation using offensive language
Classic advice from a b**** who probably was broke. Insinuation something insulting and name-calling using a derogatory term

Severe Attacks

A severe attack goes further. Severe attacks use threats, hate speech, or extremely offensive language to target a person’s characteristics that are legally protected against discrimination (e.g., race, religion, or sexual orientation). It’s not just about criticizing; it’s about causing harm or spreading hate based on who someone is or what they believe.

Severe attacks are directed toward an individual or group based on characteristics protected by US federal law:

  • Race or color
  • Religion
  • National origin
  • Age (40 and over)
  • Sex
  • Gender identity (incl. respecting someone’s expressed / preferred gender identity)
  • Sexual orientation
  • Pregnancy
  • Familial status
  • Disability status
  • Veteran status
  • Genetic information

Severe Attack Examples

Transcript Explanation
F*** you F**. Slur based on perceived sexual orientation
The goal here is to disrupt your children and to replace your white children, your white Christian children, with people from third-world sh**holes all over the country. Expresses negativity toward and vilifies a race, ethnicity, national origin, and religion
Well, the thing that you’re failing to take into account is that in California they have a lot of g** p**n. They have more Asians. They should be better at math. Well, maybe it’s not ch*** pornography so much as Asian pornography. Sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference. Expresses negativity toward and vilifies a race, ethnicity, and sexual orientation

What is not an attack?

Language that critiques ideas, actions, or arguments without targeting an individual or group’s characteristics or identity is considered constructive criticism rather than an attack. Therefore, these critiques do not impact the Civility Score. This kind of language focuses on the subject matter or behavior in question rather than demeaning or belittling the individual.

Merely stating the following without insulting language is not considered an attack:

  • Negative review or sentiment of the subject in discussion
  • Unflattering or biased reporting that puts the subject in a bad light
  • Allegation or personal assessment that is unfavorable to the subject
  • Offensive language, expletive, or profanity that is not used to insult a person or group
  • Offensive language that is part of a title or name of creative work
  • Discussion of sensitive topics like race, gender, sexuality, etc. without any insults or offensive language

Not an Attack Examples

Right, that’s great for you. It doesn’t work for me. You can’t convince me to like her. I don’t like her. Expresses dislike or negative preference without being insulting.
She thinks she’s just going back to this guy’s apartment that she’s really hit it off with. I mean, I speak for myself, how many f***ing times have I done that? Uses profanity but it is not directed at anyone or part of an insult.
There’s so many different things, your engineering skills for some of you. I can’t even change a light bulb, right? The speaker is engaging in self-deprecation and suggesting they are not very skilled or capable of a basic task. However, they do not use any offensive language.

Calculating the Civility Score

Overview

Civility Scores range from a value of 100 – 0 and are categorized into four labels: High, Medium, Low, and No Civility. The AI model driving the Civility Score in Seekr Align is inspired by the complexity and nuance of the human decision-making process. Unlike a linear algorithm that follows a strict set of rules regardless of circumstance, this scoring system factors in context, including nuanced situations that can occur within podcast conversations.

When evaluating content, the AI measures personal and severe attacks based on their frequency. It recognizes that a higher occurrence of such attacks signals a decline in civility. However, since severe attacks target legally protected characteristics or incite harm, there is a specific threshold. Once this threshold is crossed, the content is immediately classified as having “No Civility,” reflecting a low-tolerance stance for deeply harmful language.

This approach acknowledges that while some negative interactions might be part of normal discourse, there is a clear boundary where respect and civility are compromised beyond redemption. In this way, the Civility Score emulates the nuanced, non-linear way humans think and judge social interactions, balancing tolerance with firm boundaries against severe misconduct.

Civility Score: Episodes

Each podcast episode is scored by determining the episode length and dividing that by all personal and severe attacks found in the episode transcript to determine the rate of Attacks per hour of that episode.

Civility Score: Shows

The same method used to calculate episode scores is used to determine the Civility Score for shows, except the total duration of all episodes is divided by the total number of personal and severe attacks to determine the rate of Attacks per hour for all scored episodes of the show.

Civility Score Labels

High Civility

A High Civility Score indicates that either no or very low amounts of personal or severe attacks were found per hour. The language used is respectful and avoids harmful or derogatory speech. It reflects an environment where discussions are focused on ideas and constructive criticism, rather than on attacking individuals. This score suggests that the content is suitable for a wide audience and aligns with values of respect and inclusivity.

Score Range: 100 – 75
Attack Frequency: Infrequent

High Civility Examples:

Medium Civility

A Medium Civility Score indicates a moderate amount of personal or severe attacks were found per hour. Language used is generally respectful but does contain content that could be seen as offensive or provocative. It indicates that while the discussion mostly maintains a polite tone, there are sporadic lapses into less constructive criticism or derogatory remarks. This score implies that the content is somewhat suitable for audiences but may require discretion, as it sits in the middle ground between High Civility and potentially offensive content.

Attack Frequency: Somewhat Frequent

Medium Civility Examples:

Low Civility

A Low Civility Score indicates a high amount of personal or severe attacks were found per hour. Extreme, disrespectful, offensive, or discriminatory language is frequently used. It indicates the conversation often strays from respectful and constructive dialogue and leans towards negativity or harm. This score warns that the content might be unsuitable for many audiences, as it consistently fails to uphold standards of respect and inclusivity.

Score Range: 49 – 25
Attack Frequency: Very Frequent

Low Civility Examples:

No Civility

A No Civility Score indicates an extremely high amount of severe attacks were found per hour. Content is devoid of respect, engaging in extreme attacks, offensive language, or hate speech. It represents a level of discourse where there is no effort to maintain any form of politeness or constructive dialogue, often resulting in a highly toxic and harmful environment. This score suggests the content is highly inappropriate for almost all audiences, as it violates basic norms of respectful communication.

Score Range: 24 – 0
Attack Frequency: Unacceptably Frequent

GARM Risks

Overview

The Global Alliance for Responsible Media (GARM) is a brand safety and suitability framework established by the World Federation of Advertisers to help determine what is considered safe and appropriate content for brand advertisements.

Seekr AI utilizes the GARM framework to evaluate podcast transcripts by detecting risk severity within 11 categories. This process allows for a nuanced assessment of content, ensuring advertisers can make informed decisions about where to place their ads, based on the level of risk they are willing to accept within each category.

It’s important to note that the Civility Score operates independently and does not impact GARM Risk detection.

Calculating GARM Risks

Overview

Seekr AI detects GARM Risks by considering the nuance of language, including the severity of terms used, the context in which they appear, and the tone of the conversation. GARM Risks found in transcripts are categorized and labeled with a risk level of None, Low, Medium, High, or even a Floor level indicating that content falls below the threshold of acceptability.

GARM Risk categories include:

  • Death, Injury, Military
  • Firearms
  • Harmful Acts
  • Hate Speech
  • Online Piracy
  • Profanity
  • Regulated Substances
  • Sensitive Social Issues
  • Sexual Content
  • Spam
  • Terrorism

GARM Risks: Episodes

Each podcast episode is evaluated by detecting all GARM Risks found in the transcript, then categorizing and labeling instances with a risk level of None, Low, Medium, High, or Floor.

An episode must have a minimum of 3 risks in the same GARM category to trigger an episode GARM Risk. The 3 risks can be of any level (Low-Floor).

Risks are then averaged using a weighted scale to determine an episode GARM Risk. Since advertisers are more sensitive to high-risk instances, those are weighted accordingly.

GARM Risks: Shows

GARM Risks for shows are calculated by averaging all episode GARM Risks on all episodes.

GARM Risks Defined

Overview

GARM has identified 11 key categories of harmful content and established common definitions crucial for risk detection across the advertising industry. This shared framework ensures consistent categorization to enable platforms, agencies, and advertisers to make informed decisions in support of public safety and responsible speech and marketing practices.

Generally, low risk levels in each category indicate an educational and informative approach to the topic at hand. Medium risk levels contain dramatic discussion, opinions, or detailed news coverage of the topic. High risk levels are associated with an insensitive or irresponsible handling of the topic. Floor Risk may promote or advocate for destructive or harmful behavior related to the risk category.

Hate Speech Examples

GARM Risk Transcript Explanation
Low I’d like to reverse engineer anti-Semitic ideas and see what facts are sprinkled in there, how they’re misconstrued or distorted. Because I think anti-Semitism can be decoupled from history in a sense. And some people can say, well, it’s always been there from blood libels in the Middle Ages down to today. It’s just part of the furniture of the human experience. But really, we need to understand where these things come from. Educational discussion of hateful acts targeting a religious and ethnic group
Medium There are parallels, obviously. They’re both in the SS. They both believe in Nazism. They both believe that the enemies of Nazism, in particular the Jews, had to be exterminated because they were trying to destroy German and European, indeed world civilization, a kind of paranoid delusion of which is hard to understand how anybody could fall for it. But they were similar in that way. Dramatic discussion of hatred and hateful acts targeting a religious and ethnic group
High You know, I think we should change the whole thing to LGBTQ people. I consider plagiarists to gender. And therefore, plagiarists like her should be accepted as equals amongst honest people, especially amongst diverse honest people who have betrayed their own genders with mysterious looking crotches, which I love. It’s also possible that she’s been plagiarizing her race this whole time. Maybe she’s been wearing blackface. Discussion of hateful, denigrating, and inciting content focused on race, sexual orientation, and gender identity
Floor Let’s see what we can deduce from this. Kill those kids, those crackers, going to private fancy schools with those fancy khakis and sports backpacks with their daddy’s Mustangs and convertibles. Bleep you, you little bleep. I wish to shoot your weak bleep, bleep, bleep, bleep with your mop yellow hair, want to kill you, all little crackers, bunch of little, and I mean, I’ll say what she wrote.

Medium We started off studying psilocybin because we know it’s very safe. It’s been widely used. Millions of young people have been eating magic mushrooms in Britain for decades. So it was safe.

High Well, you know, there’s also really sweet moments. Waking up… After a little LSD trip, because you have to do something to alter your conscious. I mean, you just can’t.

Sensitive Social Issues Examples

GARM Risk Transcript Explanation
Low Harvard argued that without affirmative action, the school’s racial diversity would all but dry up. General news coverage about affirmative action
Medium Well, I’d say Hezbollah itself is much more of a political party than Hamas. Hamas won the election, and all they did was just keep attacking Israel. Hezbollah actually does stuff. I mean, they’re in the government, and they do hospitals and schools and things like that, what makes a government function. They work with the Druze. They work with the Christians. Opinionated discussion about Hezbollah and Hamas
High Because from a pro-life Christian perspective, abortion is sacrificing children to Satan. And they might be stepping on that rake of their own making, just embracing it by calling their advocacy for abortion choice a religious ritual for Satanism. I kind of agree with them. Now, they don’t believe they’re sacrificing children to a literal Satan, but I do. Negative and partisan discussion about abortion
Floor Guys who are not incel pieces of s*** who care about women and don’t want to see them constantly legally being raped would have to kill these misogynistic idiots in massive numbers. So much death, so much chaos. Most kids would grow up not knowing who their dads are, barely being raised by constantly f***ed, mentally unhinged mothers, on and on. Society would truly collapse completely if rape was no longer a crime. And finally, thanks to vigilante justice, most weak little wrist-having pinhead incels will be f***ing murdered.

What is perimenopause? Educational discussion about sexual health
Medium Yes, physical attraction is there. Yes, our sex life is great. Oh, we’re always curious about each other. But things happen. And when we don’t have those skills, again, everything starts to chip away. And then, bam, right, you had me at goodbye. Discussion of sexuality issues
High There are adults who want to do whatever freaky s*** you can, whatever bodily fluids you want to get into. There are consenting adults who want to do all that s***. Suggestive sexual discussions

Medium So what the scammers would do is say, well, you connect to me and there’s a little bit of software internally that says switch sides with partner. And then they would connect back to the victim, supposedly. So I was actually given the scammer’s username and password so I can connect to their computer. Detailed discussion about spam and scammer
High Like I have scripts right now that I won’t give out. Um, like I have a flipper zero ransomware scripts and I have a key logger scripts. Um, So there’s a bunch of stuff that I am aware of and things that I have because I’ve used them for videos before. But are there places out there that are writing codes for stuff?

Dramatic and opinionated discussion of terrorism
High Let me explain something to the terrorists. We don’t live in a piece of s*** country like you hail from where you f***ing blow up one outhouse. You blow up one f***ing outhouse and the whole country’s not right for the next year. We got thousands of outhouses here. F***ing take down the trade centers. We’re up and running a week later. Insensitive discussion of terrorist acts
Floor Yeah. So the question for me is not really what’s Hamas up to or whether terrorists up to it. They’re f***ing nuts. It’s a lost cause. They need to be exterminated. Sorry, they’re done. Advocating for the extermination of terrorists
