Instagram is using AI to alert bullies to offensive captions

  Instagram is using AI to alert bullies to offensive captions Instagram's anti-bullying efforts now extend to discouraging abusive behavior in posts, not just comments. It's introducing a feature that warns people when their post captions might be offensive, using AI to detect language similar to posts that have previously been reported. In theory, this makes bullies second-guess their vitriol, stick to kinder language and learn about the social network's rules. You can ignore the warning if Instagram made a mistake.The anti-bullying notice is available now in "select countries," and should be available elsewhere in the "coming months."Whether or not this proves effective is uncertain.

The social networks have announced that they're banning "branded content" (read: influencer posting) that promotes weapons, tobacco and vaping. You'll also see "special restrictions" on posts that market products like alcohol and diet supplements. Enforcement for the new rules should take effect in the "coming weeks," Facebook said.

The prototype was discovered by Jane Manchun Wong, the master of reverse engineering who's provided tips to TechCrunch on scores of new features in development. She generated the screenshots above from the code of Instagram's Android app "Welcome Back! Get caught up on the posts from [names of people you follow] and 9 more" reads the pop-up that appears over the home screen. If users tap "See Posts" instead of "Not Now", they're sent to a separate screen showing recent feed posts.

We've reached out to Instagram for a confirmation of the prototype, more details, and clarification on how Latest Posts would work. The company did not respond before press time. However, it has often confirmed the authenticity of Wong's findings, and some of the features have gone on to officially launch months later.

Latest Posts could be another way to let frequent Instagram users know that they're totally up to date.

New Galaxy Fold rumored to have the one feature we’ve been dying to see on regular smartphones .
Most smartphones look identical these days, thanks to the numerous innovations that made possible all-screen phone designs. Most of these phones feature thin bezels around the displays, although the screen to body ratio isn’t a perfect 100%. The selfie cam still gets in the way of that, and we’re not ready to give up selfie cameras just yet. Several tech companies are already studying technology to place that camera under the screen, and we already saw the first prototypes of such screens last year. But the first commercial device to actually equip under-display camera tech might be Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Fold successor.
