Facebook Uses AI as a Weapon Against Terrorism

In the wake of recent terror attacks, Facebook has issued a statement through their newsroom on countering radicalization. The social media platform is immensely popular, with worldwide users reaching 1.94 billion each month. It also can’t be denied that even terrorist groups have easy access to their website. As a result, Facebook has been faced with criticisms over their lack of efforts to eradicate terrorist propaganda from their pages.

Throughout the first half of 2017, there have been 571 terrorist attacks recorded, which resulted in 3,924 fatalities around the world. Infamous perpetrator groups involved in these separate attacks include Al-Qaeda, ISIS, Taliban, Boko Haram, PKK, and other unknown entities. Just last year, it was discovered that these terror groups have also invaded the web with their illegal activities. They were using Facebook to create closed groups to buy and sell weapons and make secure payment through Messenger.

Facebook finally decided that they’ve had enough, deploying one of their best soldiers to stop terrorists from using their website—artificial intelligence. As explained by the team, the technology is similar to that used to block child pornography. The algorithm also aims to eradicate hate speech and the efforts of jihadist recruiters.

Currently, the social media platform’s AI algorithms can counter-terrorism in the following ways:

Trace Terrorist Content: Although it is still in the experimental stage, Facebook aims to perfect its “language understanding” algorithm. This can help identify terrorist content through text-based signals.

Find Terrorist Clusters: The AI is designed to look for terrorism-associated pages, posts, groups, personal accounts, and other materials that support terrorism content. It can also determine whether an account that has been disabled for terrorism shares the same attributes with an active account.

Image Matching: The algorithm also helps the social media site to recognize images or videos that have previously been flagged. Doing so will prevent the upload and sharing of any terrorist propaganda.

Furthermore, Facebook is said to be currently developing another algorithm that will help them investigate terrorist activity across other platforms. WhatsApp and Instagram, which belong to the family of Facebook apps, are also popular among terrorists.

To strengthen their defenses, the company has admitted to using human efforts as well. From academic experts on counterterrorism, former law enforcement agents and analysts, former prosecutors, to engineers, Facebook has employed a lot of these professionals to continue the fight against terrorism the best way they know how.

Alexis Bortell: Texas 9-Year-Old Uses Marijuana To Cure Seizures

Young Alexis Bortell is taking on Texas in her bid to legalize medical marijuana.

The 9-year-old from Dallas started having seizures at the age of 7 and was eventually diagnosed with epilepsy. Her doctors initially prescribed medication but it didn’t do anything for her condition. At one point, it even made her worse.

According to Alexis’ father Dean, a US Navy veteran, she was initially prescribed with Carbatrol. Her seizures went from “mainly at night to around the clock.” The next drug they tried, Depakote, gave the young girl tremors and altered her personality, but didn’t stop the seizures.

The Bortell’s started looking into medical marijuana after watching “Weed 2,” a CNN documentary on medical marijuana. After doing their own research and consulting with specialists, Alexis was issued a “red card” in Colorado, allowing doctors to prescribe her with marijuana-based medication. The medication appears to be working.

“Since the first dose, she has not had a single symptom or seizure and we’re on day 22 now,” her family wrote on Alexis’ Facebook page.

Unfortunately, Alexis can’t use any marijuana-based medication in Texas. The state has banned its medical and recreational use and even has harsh penalties for those in possession of marijuana oils and tinctures, which are the most common form of medical marijuana.

Despite Alexis’ appeal that she “don’t wanna leave Texas. I’m a Texas girl,” her family had no choice but to relocate to Colorado.

Alexis and her family aren’t taking it sitting down though, as they continue to push Texas lawmakers to legalize the treatment.

Several bills have already been proposed but advocates have described them as “appeasement legislation” that doesn’t really help people suffering from diseases that can be helped with medical marijuana.

However, things might be looking up for the Bortells and other families like them. New medical marijuana bills from Texas representative Marisa Marquez and Senator Jose Menendez aim to provide patients with a wide range of conditions access to medical marijuana.

If it’s successful, Alexis’s dream of going back home to Texas might finally come true.
