Facebook is in constant research of ways to make connection among its users easier. And this is why, for its latest tool, they are assigning artificial intelligence.

The new tool’s name is Automatic Alternative Text and it is using the object recognition technology. It is “reading” images and objects included in them. This new feature is available only for iOS users so far, but soon the Facebook Accessibility will make sure it is available for Android users and in languages, other than English.
