Facebook Says It Removes 99 Percent Of Terrorist Content Before Anyone Else Reports It

Recommended Posts

Facebook said Tuesday that 99 percent of terrorist content on the platform — like material from or related to ISIS or al-Qaida — is purged before anyone else flags it first.

The use of artificial intelligence (AI) and other automation is a major contributing factor for the seemingly high success rate, according to Facebook.

“We do this primarily through the use of automated systems like photo and video matching and text-based machine learning,” Monika Bickert, head of global policy management, and Brian Fishman, head of counterterrorism policy, wrote in a blog post. “Once we are aware of a piece of terror content, we remove 83% of subsequently uploaded copies within one hour of upload.”

Facebook is using AI for more than one critical initiative, as it announced Monday that such a technological capability is helping reduce the amount of suicides broadcasted live on its platform.


Why don't I believe them!

This is another example of whitewashing history.

The public can't be aware of what's really going on if the only info they have is a 404. And bookface is proud of itself? Ridiculous. 

What we really need is unfettered access to what is being posted so we can have an informed discussion about what is going on in the world. A free and open society wouldn't have the problems we face today.
