Facebook Claims New A.I. Now Detects 94.7% of the Hate Speech that Gets Removed From its Platform
Mike Schroepfer, Facebook’s chief technology officer, revealed the figure, adding that it is up from 80.5% a year ago and just 24% in 2017. Social media firms including Facebook, Twitter, and TikTok have been criticized for failing to keep hate speech, such as racial slurs and religious attacks, off their platforms.
Facebook also announced the creation of a new tool for detecting deep-fakes (computer-generated videos made to look real).
