A CHROME PLUGIN
The basic idea is that with enough data about Internet ads, it would be possible to can create a ML model that will be able to detect them. The model will run in the browser with tensorflowjs. All data submitted through the chrome plugin is anonymously collected.
If this seems like something you'd like to help with, please download the plugin and help submit ads! Once there's enough data the plugin will automagically block ads. The goal is to fill the gap where normal network based blockers fall short, by allowing the requests for ad content to succeed and then removing them from the dom.
