Facebook's new software will soon help users in identifying terrorists

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will now help users to identify terrorists with the help of its incoming artificial intelligence (AI) software. The software will help users in reviewing the content present in the site, reveals the letter outlining the plan.

Zuckerberg also said that the present algorithm will help in identifying “terrorism and actual terrorist propaganda” alongside other detailing as bullying and violence.

In the letter, he states:

“We’re starting to explore ways to use AI to tell the difference between news stories about terrorism and actual terrorist propaganda so we can quickly remove anyone trying to use our services to recruit for a terrorist organization.”

Facebook CEO also affirmed that there would be difficulties in relevance to the building of such a software:

“This is technically difficult as it requires building AI that can read and understand news, but we need to work on this to help fight terrorism worldwide.

“The path forward is to recognize that a global community needs social infrastructure to keep us safe from threats around the world, and that our community is uniquely positioned to prevent disasters, help during crises, and rebuild afterwards. Keeping the global community safe is an important part of our mission — and an important part of how we’ll measure our progress going forward.”
