ActiveFence acquires Rewire, an innovator of online safety AI, to join forces and expand AI models

Innovation is the way forward for battling harmful content online, and artificial intelligence is leading the way. ActiveFence’s Trust and Safety platform takes this to the next level by combining human intelligence expertise with expansive and innovative AI, fueling content detection models with proprietary data.

That’s why we are proud to announce the acquisition of Rewire, an innovator of AI for online safety.

Rewire’s repertoire of text models, which detects different types of harmful content, like hate speech, sexually explicit language, insults, violence, and suicide and self-harm language will amp up our own AI models. Moreover, Rewire’s catalog of state-of-the-art datasets will support our existing models, improving our ability to arm our customers in the fight against malicious behavior, allowing them to reliably find and take action against dangers at scale in real time.

Rewire’s Proprietary Development Process

Rewire’s proprietary development process sets them apart and drives its best-in-class performance results. By deploying adversarial data generation, Rewire is able to train better models with less labeled data, which can then be adapted to a wide range of diverse tasks. Through a iterative process, generated data is used to challenge models, which then use that data to retrain and strengthen models where they are weak.

This process has allowed Rewire to detect sexist content, flag harmful customer feedback, and help a German organization monitor anti-Semitic messages on Telegram channels.

ActiveFence & Rewire – Leading in AI

“AI is the key to powering our fight against online threat actors, but your defense is only as good as your AI models,” said ActiveFence CEO and Co-Founder Noam Schwartz. By combining forces with Rewire, we can power even more accurate and trustworthy models with high-quality datasets. ActiveFence’s assets and infrastructure will complement these models, driving efficiency and scale for online safety.

A natural match for ActiveFence, Rewire was founded to change how online platforms moderate content and create an open, safe, and accessible internet. With ActiveFence, their mission extends to over three billion users that ActiveFence protects.

We are thrilled to welcome Rewire to ActiveFence and, together, better arm customers in the fight against malicious behavior, allowing them to reliably find and take action against dangers at scale in real-time.

Rewire’s AI models will seamlessly integrate within our content moderation platform, check it out below to learn more.
