Could it be adapted for terrorist propaganda too?

The UK government is investing £600,000 in technology that allows internet companies to identify & remove indecent images of children from websites at an unprecedented rate.

Project Arachnid, which is being developed by the Canadian reporting service CyberTipline, part of the Canadian Centre for Child Protection, can be deployed across websites, forums, chat services & newsgroups to instantaneously detect illegal content, before sending a take-down notice to service providers so they can quickly protect children from further exploitation.

Now firms including social media companies will be able to ‘plug in’ Project Arachnid into their system in order to identify & flag for removal indecent imagery even in ‘closed environments’ that only users and the company can see.
