Google files patent for `Policy Violation Checker`
Washington: Google has reportedly filed a patent for a tool that will detect potentially problematic phrases, or words from electronic correspondence, which in turn, will help companies or individuals avoid lawsuits.
Like a spell checker that detects misspelled words and offers alternate spellings from its existing database, the tool, called `Policy Violation Checker`, will also offer alternative words or phrases that are `less risky` from a database created by the user in accordance with the company`s policy, the Huffington Post reports.
According to the report, Google`s new tool will not only detect potentially problematic phrases but also inform the third party about the breach of policies in the particular document.
This technology will be applicable to electronic correspondence including e-mails, word documents, spreadsheets, presentations, etc. and can be customized to be run on any type of processing device like a computer, set-top box, mobile phone or other type of processing device.
According to the report, a `problematic word or phrase` may denote some phrases or words from Google`s database, which may potentially violate the protocols of the company.
However, Google indicates that this technology is of importance to business companies and domestic monitoring is not the intended motive of this tool.
