Facebook hopes AI can help it better understand the content of your posts

Facebook is using an artificial intelligence method called deep learning to analyze data collected from its 1 billion users in a new way. The goal of the project — which is run by an eight person group known as the “AI team” — is to understand the meaning and importance behind the things users share on Facebook, according to a report from MIT Technology Review. If the team can do that, the social network might be able to predict our actions online, show us content that is more relevant to our interests, and better target advertisements, the report says.
