Facebook is building technology intended to understand, at near human accuracy, all of the things its users post on the network.
That's according to Hussein Mehanna in an interview with Recode last week. He's the engineering director for Facebook's core machine learning, part of the broader applied machine learning team tasked with infusing artificial intelligence and deep learning technology into the company's existing products.
Deep Text uses neural networks, a subset of AI and deep learning intended to mimic activity of the human brain, to understand written language so that it can then act accordingly.
