The new computer can read through several thousand posts per second, in more than 20 languages, and understand what they are all saying.
The new tool will be used to let people get more out of the site, it said. “Understanding the various ways text is used on Facebook can help us improve people’s experiences with our products, whether we’re surfacing more of the content that people want to see or filtering out undesirable content like spam,” it wrote in a blogpost announcing the change.
The tool, called Deep Text , has been developed by engineers working on the site’s bot platform. It uses deep learning, which means that it can understand things like a human and come to learn more about a language without people telling it what to think.
It hopes to go on to make its AI even smarter so that it can do other things like come to understand the context of a discussion, such as what page it is happening on, as well as making it better at understanding how text and pictures can interact to make meaning.
