The company tested this AI previously in the US to spot the troubling posts and more importantly surface suicide reporting options. The social networking company will now scan the content from all over the world for this AI to function except in the European Union regions where General Data Protection Regulation privacy laws prevent the company from handling the delicate information.

The new software will also prioritize the users who are more at risk so that they’re taken care by the moderators at the earliest.

Praising this new Facebook Suicide Prevention AI software, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said,

In the future, AI will be able to understand more of the subtle nuances of language, and will be able to identify different issues beyond suicide as well, including quickly spotting more kinds of bullying and hate.

Lately people have been uploading a lot of their personal information on the social networking sites such as Facebook. And the new features such as the Live Video are being misused by several users like the unfortunate tragic incident last month where a Father killed himself after coming Live on Facebook.
