Instagram is hoping to stop bullying on its platform with a little help from artificial intelligence.

In a statement, the company also pay attention to the fact that many users are not alerted to the harassment of the moderators of the service.

"We know we have more work to do to further limit bullying and spread kindness on Instagram", he said.

The move comes alongside new kindness camera effects on the photo sharing app in a bid to promote more positivity, as the United Kingdom prepares to mark Anti Bullying Week in November and the U.S. carries out its National Bullying Prevention Month throughout October.

According to the reports, users have already learned to bypass the text filter on Instagram by posting a photo they tend to bully or harass or other such negative purposes, however, after this feature is rolled out completely, it will block off the bullying-related content completely. "We are now using machine learning technology to proactively detect bullying in photos and their captions and send them to our Community Operations team to review", Adam Mosseri, head of Instagram, said in the post.

The new technology has begun to roll out and will continue to in the coming weeks.

In another move, a filter that enables Instagram users to detect and hide bullying remarks from Instagram feeds or profiles was extended to comments on live videos, according to Mosseri.

"It's a crucial next step since many people who experience or observe bullying don't report it", he added.

"Maddie has been speaking out against online bullying since she started experiencing it and is one of many people in our community that uses Instagram to promote positivity", the blog said. Anyone who follows Ziegler will have the camera effect automatically. You are encouraged to tag a friend to support; they in turn receive a notification, and can share it to their own story or use the filter to pay it forward.

In selfie mode, hearts fill the screen; switch to the rear camera to see kind comments in various languages.
