Isis videos targeted by artificial intelligence that can detect propaganda before it's uploaded

Artificial intelligence technology that can detect Isis videos and prevent them from being uploaded is being released to stop the spread of the “poisonous” material.

We need to prevent all these horrible videos ever getting to the sort of people who can be influenced by them.” Security services have been sounding intensifying warnings over online or “remote” radicalisation amid a record number of terror arrests in the UK.

The terrorist group’s sophisticated output has ranged from gory execution videos to attack instructions, bomb-making guides, calls to arms, ideological teachings and rosy depictions of life inside the so-called Islamic State.

The indicators used by the “advanced machine learning” system are specific to Isis and intend to avoid problems created by YouTube’s broad-brush efforts, which resulted in the removal of evidence of Syrian war crimes.

“We are trying to eliminate this horrific content across the entire web and not just on specific platforms.” John Gibson, the director of data science services at ASI, acknowledged that the software will not prevent Isis uploading videos to its own websites – which are frequently taken down – or on the encrypted messaging app Telegram.

The Home Office paid ASI – which has previously used data to predict bacon sandwich sales on easyJet flights and make buses run on time –£600,000 to create the tool over just five months from the project’s inception in September.

Censorship is limited to contracting the reach of this material and it will never be able to eradicate it from the internet.” The technology is only targeting videos and will not be able to detect Isis magazines, newspapers, photo sets and text-based propaganda.

The terrorist group’s prolific output decreased markedly in October, November and December – in the wake of military operations that drove jihadis out of key strongholds including the Syrian city of Raqqa – but has since recovered to former levels.

New technology revealed to help fight terrorist content online

Tests have shown this new tool can automatically detect 94% of Daesh propaganda with 99.995% accuracy.

It has an extremely high degree of accuracy, for instance if it analyses one million randomly selected videos, only 50 would require additional human review.

Many of the major tech companies have developed technology specific to their own platforms and have publicly reported on the difference this is making in their fight against terrorist content.

The model, which has been trained using over 1,000 Daesh videos, is not specific to one platform so can be used to support the detection of terrorist propaganda across a range of video-streaming and download sites in real-time.

She is expected to discuss the new model on her visit to find out what companies are doing to develop innovative methods that identify Daesh propaganda, and support smaller companies, such as Vimeo, Telegra.ph and pCloud to remove terrorist content from their platforms.

Separately, new Home Office analysis demonstrates that Daesh supporters used more than 400 unique online platforms to push out their poisonous material in 2017, highlighting the importance of technology that can be applied across different platforms.

Home Office unveils AI program to tackle Isis online propaganda

An artificial intelligence program that can detect Islamic State propaganda online with a 94% success rate has been developed, the Home Office has announced.

The technology could stop the majority of Isis videos from reaching the internet by analysing the audio and images of a video file during the uploading process, and rejecting extremist content.

“I have been impressed with their work so far following the launch of the Global Internet Forum to Counter-Terrorism, although there is still more to do, and I hope this new technology the Home Office has helped develop can support others to go further and faster.” The AI technology has been trained by analysing more than 1,000 Isis videos, automatically detecting 94% of propaganda with a 99.99% success rate.

The UK government has developed AI so powerful it can block 99.99% of ISIS propaganda videos before they reach the internet

The British government has announced the launch of AI software which it claims can detect ISIS propaganda videos with 99.995% accuracy and block them from being published.

BBC

'The model, which has been trained using over 1,000 Daesh videos, is not specific to one platform so can be used to support the detection of terrorist propaganda across a range of video-streaming and download sites in real-time.'

According to the BBC , ASI says the tech can 'pick out subtle signals' within videos to mark them as propaganda, and can distinguish them from news reports showing similar scenes.

UK outs extremism blocking tool and could force tech firms to use it

The Home Secretary has today announced a machine learning tool, developed with public money by a local AI firm, which the government says can automatically detect propaganda produced by the Islamic State terror group with “an extremely high degree of accuracy”.

It’s now evident how it believes it can force tech firms to step on the gas: By commissioning its own machine learning tool to demonstrate what’s possible and try to shame the industry into action.

However, on a mainstream platform like Facebook, which has around 2BN users who could easily be posting a billion pieces of content per day, the tool could falsely flag (and presumably unfairly block) some 50,000 pieces of content daily.

The Home Office is not publicly detailing the methodology behind the model, which it says was trained on more than 1,000 Islamic State videos, but says it will be sharing it with smaller companies in order to help combat “the abuse of their platforms by terrorists and their supporters”.

though at this point she’s pretty clearly hoping to get voluntary cooperation from Big Tech, including to help prevent extremist propaganda simply being displaced from their platforms onto smaller entities which don’t have the same level of resources to throw at the problem.

with industry on our side, and none of them want their platforms to be the place where terrorists go, with industry on side, acknowledging that, listening to us, engaging with them, we can make sure that we stay ahead of the terrorists and keep people safe,”

Last summer, tech giants including Google, Facebook and Twitter formed the catchily entitled Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism (Gifct) to collaborate on engineering solutions to combat online extremism, such as sharing content classification techniques and effective reporting methods for users.

(Though ISP-level blocking might be one possibility the government is entertaining.) Responding to her announcements today, a Facebook spokesperson told us: “We share the goals of the Home Office to find and remove extremist content as quickly as possible, and invest heavily in staff and in technology to help us do this.

which showed a big reduction in received reports of terrorist content on its platform (something the company credits to the effectiveness of its in-house tech tools at identifying and blocking extremist accounts and tweets).
