According to this internal document, Facebook's AI monitors content related to the new coronavirus in 17 languages and social topics in 31 languages, but none of them contain Finnish. .. The automatic detection performed on Finnish-related pages is only written in Swedish, Russian, and Arabic, and the amount is equivalent to about 20% of the total. The remaining 80% is done manually by only 11 Finns living in Berlin, Germany.

'By supporting Spanish, Arabic, and Indonesian moderation with AI, we have increased the quarterly deletion of posts that violated the hate speech clause from 9.6 million to 22.5 million.'
