Facebook has just launched a new Artificial Intelligence tool that will help ‘revenge porn’ victims. The tool will detect and remove intimate pictures and videos posted without the subject’s consent.

The social media giants, facebook claims that the machine learning tool will make sure the posts, commonly referred to as ‘revenge porn’, are taken down, or deleted, and this will save the victim from having to report them.

Facebook users or victims of unauthorised uploads currently have to flag the inappropriate pictures before content moderators will review them. The company also suggest users to send their own intimate photos to Facebook so that the service can identify any unauthorised uploads.

The company’s new machine learning tool is designed to find and flag the pictures automatically, then send them to humans to review. Social media sites across the board have struggled to monitor and contain abusive content users upload, from violent threats to inappropriate photos.

The company has faced harsh criticism for allowing offensive posts to stay  too long and sometimes for removing images with artistic or historical value.

Facebook said it’s been working on expanding its moderation efforts, and the company hopes its new technology will help catch some inappropriate posts.

The technology, which will be used both on Facebook and Instagram, is trained using pictures that Facebook has previously confirmed were revenge porn. It recognises a ‘nearly nude’ photos, for instance, a lingerie shot, coupled with derogatory text which would suggest someone uploaded the photo to embarrass or seek revenge on someone else.
