Search Giant Google, has recruited in-house machine learning framework, TensorFlow, that will help train additional spam filters for Gmail users. Company claims that Gmail is now blocking 100 million spam messages every day. Google said that Gmail already blocks 99.9 percent of spam, Therefore, to ensure that the last piece of one percent is difficult.
“At the scale we’re operating at, an additional 100 million is not easy to come by,” Neil Kumaran, product manager of Counter Abuse Technology at Google, tells The Verge. “Getting the last bit of incremental spam is increasingly hard, [but] TensorFlow has been great for closing that gap.”
Gmail is now using an AI filter, that can block spam, it’s a kind of pattern and set of rules that will suggest that the message is spam or not.
