Facebook pumps of character recognition to mine memes

Facebook's 'Rosetta' AI can extract text from a billion images daily Facebook's Rosetta AI can read all the memes

It then uses text recognition technology to understand the context of the text and the image together.

Later on, Facebook says it could apply a similar innovation toward understanding content that shows up in video also, however that requires a more mind boggling framework.

Mark Knight: The Cartoon about Serena Williams is not about race
An Australian newspaper doubled down on its decision to run a cartoon of Serena Williams that has been called racist and sexist . She added, "There have been many times when I was playing that I wanted to break my racket into a thousand pieces.

"The rapid growth of videos as a way to share content, the need to support many more languages, and the increasing number of ways in which people share content make text extraction from images and videos an exciting challenge that helps push the frontiers of computer vision research and applications", Facebook said in its blog post regarding the future plans for Rosetta. Facebook, in particular, uses an army of moderators that help it weed out offensive content shared on the platform.

Facebook says that Rosetta has already been widely adopted within various teams at the company and with Instagram, and noted that the text extracted from images is also being used in various machine learning models, such as those to improve its photo searching features.

By its own admission, Facebook has been struggling to suppress the spread of inappropriate content - from hate speech and threats of violence to disinformation and "fake news" across its vast platform. Facebook has just deployed a new A.I. on its platform that is capable of analyzing memes, images, and video frames to detect language that it believes violate its terms of service.

Over the last few years, hate speech has emerged as one of the biggest problems faced by the social media platforms. To handle the task, the company has now designed a very sophisticated artificial intelligence which is known as Rosetta. The company says that it's using the same to improve photo search, serve personalized content, and identify hate speech content in different languages. The AI tool will be effective enough to understand multiple languages. There are simply too many users and too many posts to lay content moderation exclusively on the shoulders of human workers.

Apple announces 3 new iPhones, a new watch, not much else
It features a 6.1 inch LED edge-to-edge LED screen with a resolution of 1792 by 828 pixels and a pixel density of 326 ppi. It shares similar qualities as the new iPhone Xs and Xs Max , but there's a reason why it's $250 cheaper than the Xs.

Its solution is Rosetta, which was built with the same system as the OCR but is far more powerful.
