The British government has revealed a new tool it claims can automatically detect terrorist content online and block it from being viewed.
According to them, numerous 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 technology works by analyzing video content during the upload process, preventing it from reaching the internet in the first place - a vast improvement on the average 36 hours it takes tech firms to remove extremist content, and an improvement still on the two-hour-limit the United Kingdom government demanded previous year.
The tool, developed with United Kingdom company ASI Data Science at a cost of £600.000, claims to be able to identify 94 per cent of the online activity of Islamic State (IS), with 99 per cent accuracy.
Asked if the government may force smaller platforms to use the technology Judd said that the government is not ruling out "taking legislative action if we need to do it".
