Facebook uses Artificial Intelligence to Prevent Suicides

Facebook Prevents Suicides

March 2017

Facebook has decided to use its popularity to prevent people from committing suicide. By using artificial intelligence they’re able to detect users who may be at risk of committing suicide. The platform will scan through posts placed by users and spot posts that may contain suicidal thoughts based on posts that have been previously reported by other users.
