Facebook wants to use artificial intelligence to block terrorists online

Facebook has announced that it will improve its systems to flag and remove posts that provoke extremism, hate speech or terrorism, reported Hamza Shaban in the Washington Post. The company plans to increase the number of employees who scan for such posts, as well as working with automation and artificial intelligence.

Currently, Facebook has 150 employees who consider counterterrorism as the main part of their job description.

The company also plans to increase communication among its other networks, WhatsApp and Instagram to share data more efficiently.
