Facebook Takes into Account the New Influence of American Elections
Facebook Takes into Account the New Influence of American Elections. Although foreign actors are likely to do so in a different way than in 2016.
Facebook appeals to artificial intelligence (AI) to fight propaganda and hate speech. But “we are taking on opponents who think along,” says Schroepfer. According to him, nobody in such an environment succeeds in finding all the false information and parties.
Facebook’s technical director also wonders whether it is Facebook’s job to identify the underlying cultural, social or political motives. According to him, the answer is negative.
“In the long term, we want to leave it to society to decide which content is appropriate or unsuitable for these platforms,” he says.
“I don’t see an AI shortly that can make such decisions without human assistance,” concludes Schroepfer.
