Facebook Announces $100,000 Project to Detect “Hateful Memes”

If you can’t beat ’em, just delete ’em.

Facebook has announced the launch of a “Hateful Memes Challenge” during which researchers will compete for a $100,000 prize pool by developing artificial intelligence that can successfully detect “hateful memes.”

The company has created 10,000 “hateful” customized memes as a data set for the challenge.

“In order for AI to become a more effective tool for detecting hate speech, it must be able to understand content the way people do: holistically,” writes Facebook. “When viewing a meme, for example, we don’t think about the words and photo independently of each other; we understand the combined meaning together. This is extremely challenging for machines, however, because it means they can’t just analyze the text and the image separately. They must combine these different modalities and understand how the meaning changes when they are presented together.”

The hateful memes challenge arrives on the back of Facebook announcing its new “content oversight board,” a censorship council that includes anti-Trump leftist activist Pamela Karlan and Muslim Brotherhood supporter Tawakkol Karman.

This isn’t the first time Facebook has declared war on memes.

Last year the company “announced the deployment of a large-scale machine learning system named Rosetta, which it’s using to automatically and proactively identify “inappropriate or harmful content” in images on the social network,” reported Fox News.

In other words, Facebook developed an AI that can tell if a meme is offensive, but it apparently wasn’t very good given they are now announcing this new challenge.

The social network giant also built a tool to track the spread of memes that depicted Mark Zuckerberg as an alien.

Last year, Facebook-owned Instagram also announced that it would begin “fact checking” and removing memes.

Leftist-dominated Silicon Valley giants are desperate to reduce the viral spread of memes because the stereotype is essentially true – the left can’t meme.

A study undertaken by researchers at University College London found that the most effective memes largely originated in two places – the subreddit r/the_donald – a forum devoted to boosting President Donald Trump, and 4chan’s politically incorrect /pol forum.

A VICE write-up of the study acknowledges that the most “effectively spread” memes originated on r/the_donald and /pol.

Video: Leftist Talking Heads Claim Letting Trump Back On Facebook Will “Destroy Democracy”

“Do you want to be that institution that really helps take down the country?”

Reacting to the news that Facebook is to allow President Trump access to its platform after a two year ban, leftist ‘journalists’ on MSNBC claimed that it will “destroy democracy”.

Trump derangement syndrome is well and truly back, with New York Times editor Mara Gay, Lincoln Project co-founder George Conway, and historian Jon Meacham crying about Meta helping to “take down the country” by allowing Trump to return.

Conway said “They think, ‘Well oh, the fire’s out, so even though this guy has a cache of matches and gasoline that he carries around with him, let’s let him just play with matches again.”

Meacham described Facebook’s decision on Trump as a “devil’s bargain” claiming that Meta needs more money and Trump needs to gain relevance again.

“If you are one of these companies, do you want to be the means by which an autocrat mounts an assault on the Constitution itself?” he added.

Gay chimed in “As a country or as a company, you don’t want to hand over the keys to democracy to have someone destroy that democracy. Do you want to be that institution that really helps take down the country?” 

She went on to compare Meta’s decision to reinstate Trump to chemical companies pushing for wars so they can sell weapons.

    EU Globalist Threatens Elon Musk With “Sanctions” If He Allows Free Speech on Twitter

    Unelected technocrat demands billionaire ‘behave’ himself.

    A top EU technocrat has threatened Elon Musk with “sanctions” if he allows free speech on Twitter, asserting that the billionaire has not ‘behaved in a decent way’.

    The comments were made by EU Commission VP for Values and Transparency Vera Jourova at the annual Davos meeting of globalists.

    “The time of the Wild West is over,” Jourova told EuroNews. “We will have the Digital Services Act [DSA]. We will have the Code of Practice as a part of this legislation.”

    “So, after Mr Musk took over Twitter with his ‘freedom of speech absolutism,’ we are the protectors of freedom of speech as well,” she added. “But at the same time, we cannot accept, for instance, illegal content online and so on. So, our message was clear: we have rules which have to be complied with, otherwise there will be sanctions.”

    Jourova’s justification is a complete misnomer because illegal content is already banned on Twitter. She is obviously trying to conflate illegal content with offensive speech in an attempt to make the two indistinguishable.

    In a separate video interview, Jourova suggested that Musk had not ‘behaved’ in a ‘decent’ way like his predecessors at Twitter. In other words, he refused to bend the knee to globalists who want their draconian censorship agenda to be re-imposed.

    “We have the rules which have to be complied with and otherwise there will be sanctions,” barked Jourova, an unelected bureaucrat.

    Jourova previously attracted controversy at Davos for predicting that America would soon have similar ‘hate speech’ laws to Europe, effectively calling for the elimination of the First Amendment.

    “Illegal hate speech, which you will have soon also in the U.S. I think that we have a strong reason why we have this in the criminal law,” Jourova said.

    Throughout the elitist summit, technocrats pushed the idea that there needs to be a continuing crackdown on “hate and misinformation,” a contrived justification designed to censor speech which is critical of their own agenda to create a new world order.
