The British government has unveiled a tool that it says can block extremist content on the Internet with reasonable accuracy.

The Home Office and ASI said they will be sharing the methodology behind the new model with smaller companies, in order to help combat the abuse of their platforms by terrorists and their supporters.

Asked if the government may force smaller platforms to use the technology Judd said that the government is not ruling out "taking legislative action if we need to do it". This is versus the 36 hours or so which is apparently the average time it takes for tech firms to remove such content, which by then would have easily spread to hundreds, if not thousands of viewers.

All five major United Kingdom terrorist attacks in 2017 had an "online component", Ms Rudd said, adding there was a need to prevent the material being uploaded online and radicalising people.

Developed by ASI Data Science, the system takes advantage of machine learning to analyze online videos and determine the contents.

Commands such as "Hey Siri, what's the weather like in New York City?" and "Hey Siri, play Kanye West" work without a hitch. This coupled with a wide range of products and low prices, TrendForce finds consumers are more willing to buy Amazon Echo .

Mrs May has also frequently cajoled internet companies such as Facebook and Twitter to do more to prevent safe spaces online that allow extremism to proliferate. While tech giants have been developing their own technology to tackle the problem, smaller platforms are increasingly targeted by ISIL and often do not have the same level of resources to develop technology. 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 go further and faster. There are tools out there that can do exactly what we're asking for.

Ms. Rudd is now visiting the U.S.to meet tech companies and discuss the idea, as well as push other ideas aimed at tackling extremism.

"They can encourage the companies they invest in to introduce a facility to enable users and authorities to flag terrorist material for removal", Ms Rudd added.

However, the bigger challenge is predicting which parts of the internet that jihadis will use next.
