Facebook Inc said on Friday it would use artificial intelligence to combat the spread of intimate photos shared without people’s permission, sometimes called “revenge porn,” on its social networks.

The new technology is in addition to a pilot program that required trained representatives to review offending images.

“By using machine learning and artificial intelligence, we can now proactively detect near-nude images or videos that are shared without permission,” the social networking giant said in a blog post. “This means we can find this content before anyone reports it.”
