Facebook’s contract workers are looking at your private posts to train AI

A new report reveals that contract workers are looking at private posts on Facebook and Instagram in order to label them for AI systems. Indian outsourcing firm Wipro has employed up to 260 workers to annotate posts according to five categories. These include the content of the post, the occasion, and the author’s intent. The labeling efforts have not previously been reported.
