Facebook fighting suicide with AI

Facebook is rolling out artificial intelligence to identify when a user might express thoughts of suicide.

Facebook plans to:

  • Use pattern recognition to detect posts or live videos where someone might express thoughts of suicide.
  • Improve how it identifies appropriate first responders.
  • Dedicate more reviewers from its Community Operations team to review reports of suicide.

“We are committed to continuing to invest in pattern recognition technology to better serve our community,” said Facebook.

“With the help of our partners and people’s friends and family on Facebook, we hope we can continue to support those in need.”
