    ‘Filter’ is the internet word for ‘Censor’.
    It doesn’t matter if it is an anti-free-speech politician’s agents who do it, or an AI algorithm, it is still censorship.
    Censorship is the enemy of democracy.

    Finding 94% of known extremist propaganda sounds good, though one might make the point that unless Daesh tell us about any content of theirs that we hadn’t spotted there needs to be the caveat that there could be “unknown unknowns” out there. But what troubles me is the potential for false positives, how many things that were not extremist content got caught up in the net, and how does the government propose keeping such software focussed on extremism when the world and her auntie knows how filters and profiling can be retrained or even hijacked by using euphemisms. Including repurposing the filterers words as euphemisms.
