Facebook builds AI to understand memes

Facebook's 'Rosetta' AI can extract text from a billion images daily
For better or worse, memes are a part of the online culture, and they are especially prevalent on social media sites.
The Rosetta system is now operational in Facebook's network, being used daily, the authors write.
Facebook's Rosetta AI can read all the memes
As you might already known, Facebook relies heavily on algorithms to sift and sort through content.
For what its worth, Facebook and Twitter have constantly updated their policies, and put in place mechanisms to curb the spread of offensive content on their platforms. Facebook employs flesh and blood moderators too, of course, but its fancy algorithms play a huge role in the experience.
SC coastline battered as Hurricane Florence lands
South Carolina's state capital Columbia is at only 89m (292ft). "We're kind of at the mercy of the storm". "We're fully prepared. If you've got a trip coming up to the Caribbean, be sure to check the forecast and the status of your flights with your airline.
Using this system, Facebook is able to extract the text from an image - such as a meme - as well as from videos shared on Facebook and Instagram.
The system approaches text analysis as a so-called sequence prediction problem. The overall process involves two steps of detecting a rectangular region that might contain text and then performing text recognition using a convolutional neural network (CNN). There's also a training element at play. It will scan all the image on which it is overlaid which will lead to the engineers I order to equip Rosetta with the predictive capabilities.
IPhone XS, XS Max: First Impression
The exclusion of these older models also omits the 3.5mm headphone jack for once and all from the iPhone lineup. Gareth recons that the lower price will make the iPhone XR the best selling new iPhone revealed this year.
Enter Rosetta - The AI that Facebook built in-house is being deployed across Instagram and its flagship platform.
"The rapid growth of videos as a way to share content, the need to support many more languages, and the increasing number of ways in which people share content make text extraction from images and videos an exciting challenge that helps push the frontiers of computer vision research and applications", the company writes.
This is just the beginning of what Facebook hopes to accomplish. The AI system is meant to keep an eye out for inappropriate or harmful content on Facebook-owned platforms, as well as streamline photo search and enhance accessibility to visually-impaired via screen readers. These are all things Facebook is working to improve. In addition, text doesn't always come in neat, horizontal rows-it's sometimes warped, rotated, obfuscated, or otherwise distorted.
Hurricane Florence weakens, but still a strong flood threat
Duke Energy Corp expected between 25 percent and 75 percent of its 4 million customers would lose power in the Carolinas. More than 80,000 people were already without power as the storm approached, and more than 12,000 were in shelters.
