Instagram added artificial intelligence (AI) to be able to scan its users’ faces and estimate how old they are. This social network is working with Yoti, a British external company, which will implement this tool.
Starting today, Yoti will be enabled on Instagram for users in the United States, but will gradually reach other countries.
The tool consists of sending a selfie video to Yoti and using machine learning to estimate a person’s age.

Meta notes that they are working on improving technology to detect users’ age based on an analysis of their language and the way they write. It will also ask three followers to confirm the age of the person in question. To do this, they have three days to respond to Instagram’s request, otherwise the account will be cancelled.
