Hi Fellow Fools,

These social media icons are using artificial intelligence to fight terrorists:

Once upon a time, terrorists used bombs, machetes, and bullets to get their message across. While that's still the case, modern day terror has a new tool at its disposal, one that it has become particularly adept and successful at deploying: social media. This stark reality has come to light in the wake of terror campaigns that ended with participants pledging their support to their chosen causes and posting them on social media platforms.

Other insidious forms of communication and objectionable material have flourished in the internet era as well. Hate speech and violent threats have found homes there. Governments and advertisers worldwide are aware of the phenomenon and are increasingly pressuring social-media companies like Facebook, Inc. (NASDAQ:FB), Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOGL) (NASDAQ:GOOG), Twitter, Inc. (NYSE:TWTR), and Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) to police undesirable content on their sites.
