Quartz: Israel arrested a Palestinian after Facebook translated ‘Good morning’ as ‘Attack them’

Quartz: Israel arrested a Palestinian after Facebook translated ‘Good morning’ as ‘Attack them’. “Last week, a Palestinian man working at a construction site in an Israeli settlement in the West Bank, posted on Facebook a photo of himself in front of a bulldozer, with the words ‘Good Morning’ in Arabic. The platform’s automatic translation mistook the words for ‘attack them’ in Hebrew, and ‘hurt them’ in English.”
