In view of the increase in hate and false messages, the online service Facebook has announced that it will create 1,000 new jobs in order to increase the digital security of the portal. The jobs are to be created at the London location this year, said the Chief Operating Officer of the American company, Sheryl Sandberg, on Tuesday. Above all, the development of artificial intelligence is in the foreground, “in order to remove harmful content faster”.
