Facebook using artificial intelligence to detect suicide risk
NEW YORK POST:
Facebook is turning to artificial intelligence to detect if someone might be contemplating suicide.
Facebook already has mechanisms for flagging posts from people thinking about harming themselves. The new feature is intended to detect such posts before anyone reports them.
The service will scan posts and live video with a technique called “pattern recognition.” For example, comments from friends such as “Are you ok?” can indicate suicidal thoughts.
