Social Media giant Facebook who has been facing several probes all over the world for the content shared on its platform has announced of doing long term investments in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to detect content that violates its policies.
“To help us catch more of this problematic content, we’re working to make sure our AI systems can understand content with as little supervision as possible,” said Manohar Paluri from Facebook’s AI team during the company’s F8 conference in San Jose, California.
“Advances in natural language processing (NLP) has helped us create a digital common language for translation, so we can catch harmful content across more languages,” he added.
For object recognition, Facebook has developed a new approach called “Panoptic FPM” which helps AI-powered systems to understand the context from the background of photos.
“Training models that combine visual and audio signals further improve results,” said Paluri.
The social platform is implementing best practices for fairness and ensures that AI’s protection does not discriminate against them during any step of product development said Joaquin Quinonero Candela from Facebook’s AI team.
