Ubisoft and Riot Games unveiled the Zero Harm in Comms research project, which aims to improve AI to protect players from harmful communication.
The firms said that with their game offerings the database they'll develop should "cover every type of player" and in-game interaction.
Ubisoft and Riot explained that with the data they gather the AI system should gain nuance and context.
The companies also intend to expand the project into an industry-wide collaboration.
"Through this technological partnership with Riot Games, we are exploring how to better prevent in-game toxicity as designers of these environments with a direct link to our communities," said Ubisoft executive director Yves Jacquier.
Additionally, the publishers said that they will share their research findings with the industry next year.
