The Facebook “Hate Memes” Challenge

This crybaby, milquetoast culture that came with the new millennium is driving me crazy. And a current news article shows why. The following information comes from the National File.

Facebook recently launched the “Hateful Memes Challenge,” where a $100,000 prize will be offered to anyone who can develop artificial intelligence to detect hate speech memes. The social media platform created 10,000 hate memes to be used as data to train the AIs during the challenge. They advised the following:

“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. 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 data will only be available to researchers and journalists, and there will be strict instructions on sharing the data.

After being attacked by the social justice police on Facebook a few years ago, I know that a segment of the population looks at this as great news. But censoring and forcing political correctness on people is only going to lead to more resentment, “hate,” and division. The reality of the world is what it is, and I’m not invested in crying about it every day. That might just be because I have a backbone.
