It was reported that the UK government as recently launched a tool that uses artificial intelligence to accurately recognize and block jihadist content online.

Approximately £600,000 of public funds had been spent on the development of the tool by London-based ASI Data Science. According to the company, the system can be configured to detect 94% of IS video uploads.

Open internet advocates have long criticized such systems, saying that it can yield a significant number of false positives. However, Home Secretary Amber Rudd told the media that she is considering forcing technology companies to use it by law.
