Facebook Set To Tackle Revenge Porn With AI

0

Facebook has announced that it is rolling out a new system that will combat revenge porn. Before you have to share your nude pictures with Facebook first privately its system knows which image to block.

“You send the nude to yourself in Messenger, and Facebook creates a hashed digital fingerprint of the photo – an encrypted version of the raw data in the image file. Anytime someone tries to upload a photo, it is checked against that fingerprint and rejected if it matches.”

The system was designed to prevent specific photos ever being uploaded to Facebook, Instagram or Messenger.

Facebook said it’s new AI-based system automatically detects nude and near-nude images and videos before they are passed to a human moderator who will decide whether to approve them or not.

By using machine learning and artificial intelligence, we can now proactively detect near nude images or videos that are shared without permission on Facebook and Instagram. This means we can find this content before anyone reports it, which is important for two reasons: often victims are afraid of retribution so they are reluctant to report the content themselves or are unaware the content has been shared.

A specially-trained member of our Community Operations team will review the content found by our technology. If the image or video violates our Community Standards, we will remove it, and in most cases we will also disable an account for sharing intimate content without permission.

Facebook explained that victims applauded its earlier system of detecting revenge porn

After receiving positive feedback from victims and support organizations, we will expand this pilot over the coming months so more people can benefit from this option in an emergency.
