Jigsaw, formerly known as Google Ideas, is an incubator on a mission to use technology to tackle some of the toughest global security challenges facing the world today—from thwarting online censorship to mitigating the threats from digital attacks to countering violent extremism to protecting people from online harassment.

Some of their creations so far include:

    Perspective. | "an API (application programming interface) that uses machine learning to spot abuse and harassment online. Perspective scores comments based on the perceived impact a comment might have on a conversation, which publishers can use to give real-time feedback to commenters, help moderators sort comments more effectively, or allow readers to more easily find relevant information."

    Project Shield. | After learning of organisations around the globe where suffering crippling digital attacks when they publish something controversial or that questions powerful institutions. The incubator created an infrastructure to protect independent news sites from distributed denial of service attacks (DDoS).

   Theres more, a lot more....
