Can Instagram Use AI To Weed Out Hate Speech?
Instagram has announced that they will begin using artificial intelligence to automatically police abusive language on its platform. The new AI-based solution, DeepText, is an engine developed by Facebook that was originally created to stamp out spam. Instagram will use DeepText to weed out hate speech by using machine learning to to better understand the context surrounding certain messages. This comes after Instagram, Facebook and several other tech giants signed an EU code of conduct which pledged them to crack down on abusive behaviour among their user bases. TubeFilter

Fyre Festival Founder Faces Fan Fury
Last Friday federal agents arrested Billy McFarland, the business man behind the disaster known as #FyreFestival, on charges of wire fraud. The disastrous Fyre Festival in April left ticket holders stranded on an island without adequate food, water, or shelter, which left many feeling like it was less of a luxury festival and more of an event straight out of “lord of the flies”. McFarland successfully tricked investors with falsified documents to provide his company, Fyre Media, with more than a million dollars to host an unmatched festival experience that was never going to be possible. McFarland could face a sentence of up to 20 years. Huffington Post

In typical internet fashion this quickly turned into a meme with people cleaning off the stars of Shrek, Britney Spears, Kermit the Frog and more while declaring them their president of choice. Hundreds of posts have appeared since the original post, generating hundreds of thousands of retweets and the hashtag #RaisedRight has spawned even more memes. BuzzFeed
