Facebook says using AI to fight terrorism on its platform

Facebook said that it still relies on reports of "terrorism posts" in order to review and remove and it does so with urgency.

USA company says technology used to block child pornography pressed into service to address spread of propaganda online. Earlier this month, British Prime Minister Theresa May called on governments to form global agreements to prevent the spread of extremism online.

However, before detailing what the company is doing or plans to do to help fight terrorism, they noted that "the challenge for online communities is the same as it is for real world communities - to get better at spotting the early signals before it's too late".

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg speaks at the company's headquarters in Menlo Park, Calif. Aug. 21, 2013. This new emphasis from Zuckerberg has followed uproar over Facebook's role in the proliferation of false news accounts during the U.S. election campaign previous year, as well as the spread of extreme content, such as videos of murder, posted to Facebook.

A Guardian report says more than 1,000 people, which Facebook calls moderators, were affected.

Facebook says it didn't find that any profiles were viewed by suspected IS members. Many of these people have backgrounds in law enforcement and they collectively speak nearly 30 languages.

"Although our use of AI against terrorism is fairly recent, it's already changing the ways we keep potential terrorist propaganda and accounts off Facebook".

"Facebook has said that it also uses other methods to monitor "terrorist" content" on its platform.

Facebook uses artificial intelligence for image-matching that allows the company to see if a photo or video being uploaded matches a known photo or video from organizations it has defined as terrorist, such as the Islamic State (IS) group, al-Qaeda and their affiliates, the company said in the blog post.

The company has deployed a system that stores a digital footprint of any video or photograph that has already been removed for promoting terrorism and automatically flags this to human reviewers if someone else tries to repost it. They said they are now training this system using text the company has previously removed for promoting terrorism.

In most cases, Facebook only removes objectionable material if users first report it.

Facebook and other internet companies have faced growing pressure from governments to identify and prevent the spread of "terrorist propaganda" and recruiting messages on their services.

Facebook is also trying to use these techniques to work across all its platforms, including WhatsApp and Instagram.

YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Microsoft a year ago created a common database of digital fingerprints automatically assigned to videos or photos of militant content to help each other identify the same content on their platforms.
