AI can now predict, shut down internet troll behavior

AI can now predict, shut down internet troll behavior (Big Think)
A team from Cornell University looks to shut down the ongoing flamewar that has taken over, well, pretty much every public area of the internet.
The Big Think notes:

If you’ve been on the internet for more than 25 minutes, you’ve most likely run into someone saying something you disagree with. As most of us realize, this is part of adult life. The world was not built explicitly for us. Most (read: good) people might move on,  but many — about 30% of Americans — take the internet comment section as their own ideological battleground.

A team at Cornell University has created an AI that could in the future root out online conversations going awry and nips them in the bud. After studying 1,200 Wikipedia Talk pages, they came upon a few surprising conclusions.
