Facebook offers $100,000 Prize for Snitching on Hateful Memes

Spread the love

Yes, you read that correctly. The Facebook Gestapo strikes again. This time the online watchdogs of Facebook will be on the look out for memes that spread hate. What that exactly means, we have no idea. As usual, who defines ‘hate’? If you hate chocolate ice cream, but I enjoy it, then can you report a post that contains a meme that shows and refers to chocolate ice cream? If you hate dogs, but I like dogs, does that give you the right to flag a meme I posted that shows a dog? This all is walking a fine line again, and it leaves the power in the hands of Facebook and their Brown Shirts (which includes both their paid employee watchdogs, and the easily offended snowflake end-users). The ‘event’ is actually called the ‘Hateful Memes Challenge‘ and it was just launched this week (2nd week of May, 2020). What it entails is giving that $100,000 prize money to whoever can come up with the Artificial Intelligence that will automatically identify ‘hateful memes’. The coder/developer would have to do a few things with their code; it would need to be able to distinguish text, decipher it and then run it through a database of known red flags. The AI would also need to be able to recognize similarities between two photos, and then compare them to a known (and ever growing) database of already made flagged memes. I’m not a hard-core coder, so I would have no clue as to how to write it, but I think I could logically flowchart out a way to do it. Bottom line though is that this is just going to become another tool for Facebook to use in their fight against Free Speech. Now your memes will be scrutinized for what Facebook will deem as hateful. … COMMENT BELOW
