According to a spokesperson, the new tech will be able to detect bullying in photos and captions.

On Tuesday, the company said it is starting to use new machine learning technology to proactively detect bullying in photos and captions. The Artificial Intelligence integrated within the app automatically detects inappropriate behavior and sends it for review to community moderators, thus lessening the occurrence of bullying.

Instagram is taking action against bullying on its platform.

The machine learning mechanism will be looking for signs of harassment in photos, such as attacks on a person's appearance or character, or threats to their well-being.

"Online bullying is complex, and we know we have more work to do to further limit bullying and spread kindness on Instagram", Adam Mosseri, the head of Instagram, said in an official statement. According to Mosseri, the new add-on has been deployed and will continue to roll out in coming weeks.

Finally, Instagram wants its users to spread kindness, and to help do that, it has launched a new camera effect that puts hearts on the screen when in selfie mode. 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. 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.

"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.

Users will get "Hide Offensive Comments" feature in the Settings within the app that will allow them to filter out words offensive comments or words, etc as well as auto-filter the posts containing the most reported words or phrases.

Beyond photos, Instagram has also added a bullying comment filter to live videos as part of efforts to keep a fun platform for all users.
