More must be done about extremist content online, says Google

"Terrorism is an attack on open societies, and addressing the threat posed by violence and hate is a critical challenge for us all", Google's general counsel Kent Walkerexplained. We are working with government, law enforcement and civil society groups to tackle the problem of violent extremism online.
Google's top lawyer on Sunday said that the company is taking new steps to curb terrorist-related content on the Internet. The Google-owned company also took the opportunity to discuss the tech industry's role in not just identifying and removing content that violates policies, but proactively denying any incentive to upload such content in the first place. Our engineers have developed technology to prevent re-uploads of known terrorist content using image-matching technology.
Today, we are pledging to take four additional steps.
"The Select Committee recommended that they should be more proactive in searching for - and taking down - illegal and extremist content, and to invest more of their profits in moderation".
Second, because technology alone is not a silver bullet, we will greatly increase the number of independent experts in YouTube's Trusted Flagger programme. Despite those efforts, he acknowledged that more had to be done in the industry, and quickly. We will expand this programme by adding 50 expert NGOs to the 63 organisations who are already part of the programme, and we will support them with operational grants.
The company promise faster review, more experts, tougher standards and an expansion of counter-radicalisation efforts to automatically scan content and remove hate.
The firm has pledged a "tougher stance" on videos that do not violate its rules but contain, for example, inflammatory religious or supremacist content. That means these videos will have less engagement and be harder to find. "We are working with Jigsaw to implement the "redirect method" more broadly". Its approach targets online advertising to reach potential Islamic State recruits, and redirects them towards anti-terrorist videos that can change their minds about joining. Potential recruits have so far clicked through on the ads at an unusually high rate and watched over half a million minutes of video content that debunks terrorist recruiting messages.
We have also recently committed to working with industry colleagues-including Facebook, Microsoft, and Twitter-to establish an worldwide forum to share and develop technology and support smaller companies and accelerate our joint efforts to tackle terrorism online.
Mr Walker said: "Collectively, these changes will make a difference".
Mr Johnson is expected to tell his European Union counterparts: "We all want to protect our people so we must say together that enough is enough - terrorism affects us all and we need a common approach to ensure the problem gets solved, and at a much faster pace than we are seeing right now".
Because extremists and terrorists attack our security as well as our values, they are against exactly what make our societies open and free. "We must not let them". Together, we can build lasting solutions that address threats to our security.
