"This change will help us identify and remove significantly more bullying", Mosseri said.

In honor of National Bullying Prevention month in the US, Instagram has unveiled its latest AI features that aims to help tackle cyberbullying by scanning posted content. When encountering such instances, the AI technology will detect the photos and won't act as an executioner but instead, it will forward such uploads to the human reviewers who will review and flag the photos and videos as appropriate or inappropriate.

"Online bullying is complex", Mosseri wrote in a blog post, recognizing that the current system of reporting and removing content that violates company guidelines isn't enough. The feature was announced earlier this year and Instagram finally started rolling it out after Adam Mosseri was appointed the leader of the photo-sharing site after its co-founders resigned citing differences with the decisions made with the features rolled out on Instagram.

To roll out officially in the coming weeks, the new tech gives the 'gram a better handle on in-app bullying.

In May, the company started filtering out bullying comments meant to harass or upset people.

Instagram has partnered with Maddie Ziegler, a New York Times bestselling author, dancer and actor to launch a kindness camera effect. If you follow Ziegler, you get the effect automatically. If you switch it on over to the rear camera, you can add a filter featuring the hashtag #kindcomments, and examples of these in multiple languages. Your tagged friend will be notified as per usual, and they can then share this post to their own story, or "spread kindness" with a selfie of their own.

Instagram had introduced a bullying comment filter which - as the name suggests - detects and hides bullying comments from Feed, Explore and Profile.

From today, Instagram also provides a new function with filter that filters out offensive comments - now you can enable it during online broadcasts.
