Facebook Claims New A.I. Now Detects 94.7% of the Hate Speech that Gets Removed From its Platform

Facebook announced Thursday that artificial intelligence software 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 said it has also developed a new tool to detect deepfakes (computer-generated videos made to look real). ⁠
