UK Combats ISIS Videos With AI Technology That Detects Propaganda

Home Secretary Amber Rudd

A new artificial intelligence technology-based program, developed by the United Kingdom firm ASI Data, funded by the Home Office, may partially solve the problem of the endless stream of Daesh (banned in Russia) video propaganda on the internet.

Details of the findings emerged as the Government unveiled new technology that aims to automatically detect terrorist content before it hits the web.

The Government claims the new tool detected 94% of IS propaganda with 99.995% accuracy.

The artificial intelligence device, developed in partnership with London start-up ASI Data Science, means that if one million randomly selected videos.

"The objective of these videos is to incite violence in our communities, recruit people to their cause, and attempt to spread fear in our society", the U.K.'s Home Secretary Amber Rudd said Tuesday in statement.

It's definitely a film that plays better with an audience. "Believe me, " Get Out " is a movie best seen in theaters". All screenings start at 7 p.m., and it's recommended you get their early.

"We know that automatic technology like this can heavily disrupt the terrorists' actions, as well as prevent people from ever being exposed to these horrific images", Rudd said in a statement announcing the new programme. There in northern California the politician will meet with various tech industry representatives, and United States government politicians, to discuss tackling terrorist content online. If used by a majority of video hosting companies, this software can make such videos harder to find by those who are vulnerable to such propaganda, ultimately preventing them from being uploaded in the first place.

And she will lay bare Home Office analysis that found ISIS used more than 400 different online platforms to spread its ideology and recruit new jihadis previous year. Smaller platforms, however, are increasingly targeted by Daesh and its supporters and they often do not have the same level of resources to develop technology.

Rudd added that she hopes the "new technology the Home Office has helped develop can support others to go further and faster".

It also revealed that 145 new platforms from July until the end of the year had not been used before. The technology uses machine learning to analyse the audio-visual content of a video and determine whether it's likely to contain terrorist propaganda.

"Not every company has access to the sort of AI talent of a Google or a Facebook or we have at ASI", Warner said.
