Instagram to use machine to help curb cyberbullying


Social media platform Instagram recently announced that it will use machine learning technology to proactively detect bullying in photos and their captions.

Currently, Instagram allows users to report accounts that contain the intent of bullying or harassment but not all bullying or harassment gets reported.

A bullying comment filter will also be added and will hide comments containing attacks on a person’s appearance or character, as well as threats to a person’s well being or health.”
