Instagram Against Bullying: Application Kicks Off Battle Against Predators

Instagram is now using machine learning to detect bullying in image uploads

Instagram's using AI to weed out bullying in photos, comments

"We know we have more work to do to further limit bullying and spread kindness on Instagram", he said.

According to the reports, users have already learned to bypass the text filter on Instagram by posting a photo they tend to bully or harass or other such negative purposes, however, after this feature is rolled out completely, it will block off the bullying-related content completely.

Let's face it: Online bullying has become common with the growing popularity of social networking platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

"Online bullying is complex", Mosseri wrote in a blog post, recognizing that the current system of reporting and removing content that violates company guidelines isn't enough. "We are now using machine learning technology to proactively detect bullying in photos and their captions and send them to our Community Operations team to review", Adam Mosseri, head of Instagram, said in the post.

Rolling the technology out across the entire social network is expected to take a few weeks.

Still, artificial intelligence will assist in the effort to "proactively detect bullying" on the platform, stepping in with machine learning where human detection often fails, as reported by The Verge.

Finally, Instagram wants its users to spread kindness, and to help do that, it has launched a new camera effect that puts hearts on the screen when in selfie mode. Facebook added tools earlier this month to enable users to hide or delete multiple comments at once and allow users to report bullying or harassment on behalf of a friend or family member.

Starting Tuesday, the bullying comment filter will also apply to Live Videos on Instagram. To try the effect, you'll either need to follow Maddie Ziegler or find someone that has it and tap "try it". In rear mode, kind comments in different languages will appear for a user to post. Do you agree with the use of artificial intelligence in wiping out inappropriate comments or photos on the social media app?
