Putting this all together, while no technology is 100% accurate, deep learning image recognition algorithms have reached a level of nuance, accuracy and precision that they can not only recognize firearms and violence in realtime today, but their ability to precisely catalog an image into thousands of objects and activities mean that in 2017 we have the technology to offer complete personalization of violence filtering, allowing each individual user to precisely define the level of violence or conflict that distresses them and have those hidden. In short, deep learning has reached a point where social media platforms simply no longer have any excuse not to take real steps towards curtailing the reach of violent imagery and in the process perhaps eliminate the infamy that drives many of the worst uses of live streaming.
