'spell-Check For Hate' Needed, Says Google's Schmidt

Recommended Posts

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-35035087

Technology companies should work on tools to disrupt terrorism - such as creating a hate speech "spell-checker" - Google's chairman Eric Schmidt has said.

Writing in the New York Times, Mr Schmidt said using technology to automatically filter-out extremist material would "de-escalate tensions on social media" and "remove videos before they spread".

His essay comes as presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton again called on Silicon Valley to help tackle terrorism, specifically seeking tools to combat the so-called Islamic State.

"We need to put the great disrupters at work at disrupting ISIS," she said during a speech in Washington DC.

In the wake of the Paris attacks, companies and governments have clashed over how to handle the terrorism threat.

Many tech firms, buoyed by the fallout from the Edward Snowden leaks, have stood firm on encryption - with the likes of Apple and others making it near-impossible to access a locked smartphone without the password, a move that has frustrated some politicians.

The logical conclusion would be to make technology "smart" and to report the user for suspected terrorist sympathies immediately. Big Brother will only allow positive thoughts of love for Big Brother.

A bit like they have companies etc acting as tax collectors. Get someone else to do their job.

Then the money saved can go into boosting banks/bankers, politicians wages/pensions and house prices some more.

I think she's missed the point that disruptive innovation is about doing things more efficiently. I don't think that's what she really wants for ISIS.

Was it not Google that labelled a pictire of a black couple as "Gorillas" ? :huh:

I don't use their search engine anymore because it always wants me to sign up to some unwanted feature. :ph34r:
