How to Stop the Next Viral Jihadi Video

A new software tool could help social-media companies shut down the distribution of violent ISIS recruiting videos....

New software to wage Whack-A-Mole against jihadi propaganda on social networks is sorely needed.

This software has been used since 2008 to identify child-exploitation videos on social platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. Apparently, the author says it can be adapted to identify violent jihadi videos. The proprietary software itself remains with the author. It is up to the participating companies to formulate a response to actionable material.

Fair enough, but the government has similar stuff I'm sure (similar to their facial-recognition software). If the gov don't license it, they'll reverse-engineer it or develop their own using the author's proof of concept.

This is a powerful tool, and could be easily misused by the gov. Even when used so-called 'properly', it will have some level of error rate.

Every tool is a double-edged sword.

Chomsky,

The Internet is a double-edged sword.

1/3rd of the band width is porn.

Not arguing that, just pointing out the flip-side.

I continue to get more worried about technological intrusion as time goes on, but technology does give us quality of life (and convenience, as well).

It's that double-edged sword thing going on.
