Meta tool for detecting terrorist content

Η Meta ετοιμάζει ένα νέο αντιτρομοκρατικό εργαλείο. Τα νέα έρχονται καθώς η εταιρεία θα γίνει πρόεδρος του Λειτουργικού Συμβουλίου του Παγκόσμιου Φόρουμ Διαδικτύου για την Καταπολέμηση της Τρομοκρατίας (GIFCT από το Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism) τον επόμενο μήνα.


Το GIFCT ιδρύθηκε από το Facebook, τη Microsoft, το Twitter και το YouTube το 2017 και από τότε έχει γίνει μια μη κυβερνητική οργάνωση (ΜΚΟ) για την αντιμετώπιση της τρομοκρατίας και του βίαιου εξτρεμιστικού περιεχομένου στο διαδίκτυο.

Η εταιρεία αναφέρει ότι διαθέτει το εργαλείο Hasher-Matcher-Actioner (HMA) που θα είναι δωρεάν για όσες εταιρείες θέλουν να το υιοθετήσουν για να καταπολεμήσουν τη διάδοση τρομοκρατικού περιεχομένου στο διαδίκτυο. Τα νέα έρχονται καθώς η Meta έχει δεσμευτεί να αυξήσει την εποπτεία περιεχομένου στην πλατφόρμα της.

“Meta's commitment to tackling terrorist content is part of a broader approach to protecting users from harmful content on our services. We are pioneers in the development of AI technology to remove hate content at scale,” said Meta's President of Global Affairs, Nick Clegg in a press release.

He continued, "We've learned over many years that if you're running a social media business at scale, you need to create rules and procedures that are as transparent and enforceable as possible."

HMA will build on Meta's previous open source video mapping and mapping software and will be able to be used against any type of content that violates the company's policies. Ideally, the tool will be able to quickly remove dangerous content, if needed, from multiple platforms.

HMA will use hashes or digital fingerprints to find duplicate images, making it easier for companies to monitor and remove terrorist-related content.
Meta's HMA will be a free, open-source content control tool "that will help platforms spot duplicate images or videos and take action against them en masse," Clegg said.

Meta said it spent $5 billion on security measures last year and has more than 40.000 employees working in this area. The company also said it has hundreds of employees in this group who have experience in law enforcement, national security, counter-terrorism intelligence and academic studies in radicalization. Everyone is working to strengthen online security.

Dina Hussein, Head of Counter-Terrorism and Dangerous Organizations Policy at Meta, Reported to ABC News that sharing Meta's Hasher-Matcher-Actioner tool with other platforms will benefit Internet platforms the most. "What we're hoping to do is improve our core best practices for the entire industry," Hussein said.

“As long as this kind of content exists in the world, it will appear online. And only through a collective collaboration can we really remove it."

Meta and GIFCT will release HMA to companies starting in January. The Best Technology Site in Greece
