Home Secretary Amber Rudd is hopeful the new software is embraced by Internet companies. Radicalising and recruiting members online could soon become a thing of the past for Isis as the UK government cracks down on propaganda.New software developed by Home Office is able to detect 94% of Isis propaganda without the need for human verification. The new software will be put to use by smaller sites such as Vimeo and pCloud.Amber Rudd, Home Office secretary, told the Evening Standard: "Over the last year we have been engaing with internet companies to make sure that their platforms are not being abused by terrorists and their supports.""I have been impressed with their work so far following the launch of the Global Internet Forum to Counter-Terrorism, although there is still more to do, and I hope this new technology the Home Office has helped develop can support others to further and faster," Rudd said."The purpose of these videos is to incite violence in our communities, recruit people to their cause and attempt to spread fear in our society.
