Facebook is Developing an AI System That Can Decipher the Memes

5 Must Have Biking Gears For An Urban Rider

But, many pages are misusing the memes in an offensive way that is not appropriate.

Optical Character Recognition (OCR) is a commonly used technology to pull text from images, such as scanned pages, without the time consuming burden of manually transcribing.

From memes to street signs to restaurant menus, the machine-learning system is already extracting text from more than 1 billion public Facebook and Instagram images and video frames, daily and in real-time. The AI system is meant to keep an eye out for inappropriate or harmful content on Facebook-owned platforms, as well as streamline photo search and enhance accessibility to visually-impaired via screen readers.

By its own admission, Facebook has been struggling to suppress the spread of inappropriate content - from hate speech and threats of violence to disinformation and "fake news" across its vast platform. So while Rosetta isn't committed to images, their pervasiveness on Facebook and Instagram will without a doubt make them a noteworthy utilize case, particularly in Facebook's discovery of hostile material. In conclusion, the company says it is also working on extending the text recognition system to other languages that don't feature the Latin alphabet data set.

Over the last few years, hate speech has emerged as one of the biggest problems faced by the social media platforms.

According to reports, the artificial intelligence tool Rosetta is said to be active now.

In a blog entry, Facebook designers say they have made a devoted AI apparatus, considered Rosetta, to peruse the content that shows up in images (and different pictures and video outlines) that are shared to Facebook and Instagram.

The social network has described the system in great detail in a blog post and say it is being put to use to "automatically identify content that violates our hate-speech policy". The AI tool will be effective enough to understand multiple languages. While text-based posts and videos have done their bit in spreading such content, memes have been a large part of the brigade aiding the spread of such malicious content.
