Facebook, the epitome of social engineering is "fighting for truth", announcing that they will use a "machine-learning model" (is this AI?) to screen
for images and video content being shared on their platform. If something is "flagged", it gets forwarded to "human fact-checkers" who will then
review the material, and censor it if it is determined that it is inaccurate.
Knowing how these tech giants operate, I don't feel that they're doing this for the sake of truth
(Facebook can push propaganda for
side still, I'm sure). They aren't doing this to protect its users
(the company has been caught selling its users information,
spying on them, and all around exploiting and manipulating users all the time, it's part of their business model). Gotta love how companies like
Facebook are so well-connected with the media and government that they are now essentially all one-in-the-same...

Facebook to Begin Fact-Checking Memes
Facebook announced Thursday that it would use a machine-learning model to identify potentially inaccurate photo and video content and then send those
items to human fact-checkers for review. "Many of our third-party fact-checking partners have expertise evaluating photos and videos and are trained
in visual verification techniques, such as reverse image searching and analyzing image metadata, like when and where the photo or video was taken,"
the company said. Facebook is looking for content that is manipulated, fabricated, or out of context, among other things.
I'm not sure where the EU stands on this issue, but I know earlier in the summer there was outrage when it was reported the the EU would ban memes:
