  • SimSimi's Response
  • SimSimi Team additionally applied the word filter in some languages. We developed the so-called ‘Bad Words Discriminator (BWD)’ to distinguish the bad word from every word of SimSimi. The testing of the BWD in some languages showed 90% accuracy to distinguish bad words from bad words. Its accuracy is gradually improving, and we aim to improve the accuracy of the discriminator in all languages to over 99%.

  • Name Protect
  • Bullying through SimSimi takes place in way of teaching an unpleasant or insulting response targetting a specific individual's name. If you enter your name in 'Name protect', no one will be eligible to teach SimSimi a response to your name. The protection period is 90 days after it is issued.
