This system detects if the content is fully violating the rules then it will remove it. Where the content is less certain and has violated the rules, this content will be ranked and sent to the team to review.

Most of the work is done through machine learning. If the AI is not sure about the violation then it will be sent to the Facebook team. This reduces a lot of time reviewing the contents.
