Facebook's Rosetta AI can read all the memes

Facebook logo used for representation

There are simply too many users and too many posts to lay content moderation exclusively on the shoulders of human workers.

The social media giant isn't intending to just use this information for memes, of course. For the second part, a text recognition system recognises the text in the detected regions and transcribes it into something that can be read by machines.

There are such a large number of images on Facebook and Instagram that the organization has enrolled its computerized reasoning to help comprehend them.

"Text extracted from images is being used as a feature in various upstream machine learning models such as those to improve the relevance and quality of photo search, automatically identify content that violates our hate-speech policy on the platform in various languages, and improve the accuracy of classification of photos in News Feed to surface more personalized content", Facebook says.

It will be important to note that Facebook in the past has tried to use AI for the objective.

Text transcription tools are nothing original, nevertheless Fb faces diversified challenges due to the dimensions of its platform and the vary of the shots it sees.

Yet Facebook admits that Rosetta is hardly a prefect system.

Rosetta has been trained on a vast data set of what Facebook calls "human-annotated" public images with text and their locations and also text on wider public images such as posters and menus.

For now, the system has mostly been applied to still imagery, but Facebook plans to increasingly employ Rosetta to extract the meaning of text from video across all its applications.

Apart from being a technological milestone for Facebook, Rosetta is also important for Mark Zuckerberg and Co in other ways.

For over a year now, Facebook has been under the scanner for the role its played in providing a platform for fake news and hate speech. Both have contributed to the loss of life, money and have even helped worsen one of the worst humanitarian crises of the current decade. Hate speech has been a big problem for Facebook, and the company has faced serious scrutiny over its involvement with accounts that have spurred on genocide in Myanmar Sri Lanka and in India. As such, it doubling down on its efforts and exploring new age AI-based tools to fight this battle is only a step in the right direction and one that should be celebrated.
