  • Publication number: 20190205372
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a method includes identifying a plurality of dyslexic users on an online social network. The plurality of dyslexic users may be identified based on content objects posted by these users over a particular time period, where the content objects may include one or more of word-level errors or sentence-level errors. A machine-learning model may be trained for text correction using a corpus of social network data, which may include at least the content objects with one or more of word-level errors or sentence-level errors, and a corresponding set of corrected content objects. A text string including one or more errors may be received from a client system associated with a first user. The text string may be transformed into a vector representation using an encoder of the machine-learning model. A corrected text string may be generated from the vector representation using a decoder of the machine-learning model.

  • Patent number: 10157307
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a method includes capturing one or more images of a physical environment surrounding the first user; determining that one or more of the images comprises a face; generating a facial image by cropping a region of the image comprising the face; sending instructions to perform facial recognition on the facial image; receiving a name associated with a second user of the online social network, wherein the face is associated with the second user, wherein the first user is represented by a first node on a social graph maintained by the social-networking system and the second user is represented by a second node on the social graph, and the first node and the second node are connected by at least one edge; and providing an audible indication of the name associated with the second user.

  • Publication number: 20180032898
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and non-transitory computer-readable media can receive a plurality of comments to a posted content item. Each of the plurality of comments is associated with at least one category of a plurality of categories based on a machine learning model. A first comment of the plurality of comments is selected for inclusion in a comment sample to be presented in a graphical user interface based on the first comment being associated with a first category of the plurality of categories. A second comment of the plurality of comments is selected for inclusion in the comment sample based on the second comment being associated with a second category of the plurality of categories.
