The UK government has unveiled a tool it says can accurately detect jihadist content and block it from being viewed.
Home Secretary Amber Rudd told the BBC she would not rule out forcing technology companies to use it by law.
The government provided £600,000 of public funds towards the creation of the tool by an artificial intelligence company based in London.
ASI Data Science said the software can be configured to detect 94% of IS video uploads.
Anything the software identifies as potential IS material would be flagged up for a human decision to be taken.
The company said it typically flagged 0.005% of non-IS video uploads. On a site with five million daily uploads, it would flag 250 non-IS videos for review.
It is intended to lighten the moderation burden faced by small companies that may not have the resources to effectively tackle extremist material being posted on their sites.
This will be applied at first to IS recruiting videos, and it is there they will gain the right to force it legally upon everyone. But it will quickly shift to being used against right-leaning material opposing immigration, opposing leftist policies, and making fun of SJWs. And once it has the force of law, it will be used prodigiously.
It would never be the death of the right, but it will be an obstacle we will have to overcome. I assume we will have to at some point switch to a twilight-web model, sort of more peer to peer, vs the current client-server model we are presently using, so as to bypass the censors.
As always, the more the SJWs infect any area with their ideology, the more people will flock out of it, and to opposing technologies.
