Facebook promises new AI tool will proactively detect revenge porn
Friday, 15 March 2019 () Facebook is launching a new AI tool today that it says can proactively detect and flag intimate images and videos of someone posted without their consent. The system will be active on Facebook and Instagram, and, unlike current filters, it can detect “near-nude” content. This content is then flagged and sent to a human moderator for review.
Currently, users on Facebook and Instagram have to report such revenge porn themselves. Facebook says it hopes that the new system will better support victims by flagging images and videos for them.
