Facebook and Instagram Using Artificial Intelligence to Locate Potential Drug Dealers

Facebook is using artificial intelligence as a “proactive detection” technique to identify drug dealers using Facebook and Instagram to sell opioids and other drugs.

The Artificial Intelligence looks for mentions of drugs, along with phone numbers, prices and names in order to flag specific users, who then have the account looked at by humans.

The practice comes as technology companies are working together as part of a group called “Tech Together to Fight the Opioid Crisis.” (source)
