Facebook’s DeepText Sees And Learns From Everything You Write

Posted by @DanHinmon, Jun 7, 2016

Thanks to @sarahblanchard who posted this link in the discussion forum a few days ago. I’m adding it here so our basic members (whose membership doesn’t give access to our discussion threads) can enjoy it.

Facebook’s DeepText AI is a deep-learning-based text understanding engine, which allows Facebook to sieve through and understand several thousand posts per second across 20 languages.

Facebook will be able to decode from your posts, whether you are looking for a ride or trying to sell your bike and automatically assist with relevant services. DeepText learns from statutes, comments as well as your private messages.

@sarahblanchard points out that this could impact the effectiveness of FB ads. Time will tell.
