“The U.K. government has released details of a tool that it says can automatically detect terrorist content on any online platform with incredible accuracy. Developed by the U.K. Home Office and artificial intelligence firm ASI Data Science, the innovative technology uses ‘advanced machine learning’ to analyze both the visuals and audio of a video. This enables it to decide whether the content could be propaganda for the so-called Islamic State, also known as ISIS. … [UK Home Secretary Amber] Rudd is visiting Silicon Valley where she will meet with communication service providers to [pressure them to cooperate with the regime’s censorship program].” (02/13/18)
