On a platform meant to be a safe place to share snapshots of users' lives, Instagram has the greatest cyberbullying problem of all social media sites. But instead of putting the responsibility on their users to report abuse, as Facebook and Twitter have done, Instagram is the first social media outlet to use machine learning to eliminate abusive language on its platform.
"Machine learning will automate jobs that most people thought could only be done by people." Hello everyone, so today I will like to tell you how the most famous companies Facebook and Google uses Machine Learning at their best to ease their tasks and do cool stuffs that earlier was thought to be impossible. Have you ever wondered that how we learn or how from our birth our brain learns each and every bit, be it our parents and friend's faces or riding bicycles or learning mathematical formulas etc. It is because our brain observes whatever we see and makes patterns (which we call as experiences)and by analysing these patterns it predicts and makes further decisions. Due to this decision making power of our brain unlike computers the developers thought that why not we give prediction and decision making power to the computers which would add extra stars to the computers speed ie now computers can take decisions and do predictions as fast as they do calculations.
Instagram, the social networking app for sharing photos and videos, launched in 2010. Today, it boasts 800 million monthly active users and is owned by Facebook. There are 70 million photos uploaded to Instagram every day. What all of this activity does is create an enormous amount of data. Once analyzed, by humans as well as increasingly through artificial intelligence algorithms, it can provide incredible business intel and insights into human behavior causing Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom to say, "We're also going to be a big data company."
Artificial intelligence is right up there with robots taking over our jobs. This is the first in a series on how big tech like Facebook uses AI to manipulate you. The number of AI applications has increased rapidly. We speculate and marvel about what AIs will be able to do in the future. But what we don't realise is that AI has already had a huge impact on the goods and services we use every day.
