Google debuts Altitude, a new free tool to combat terrorism on the internet
For those of you who do to know, Jigsaw is a dedicated team working at Google who have one job and one job only – Find and eliminate extremist content and misinformation, anywhere on the internet. They scourge places on the internet that we didn’t even know existed and when they spot something that can be a red flag, they immediately take action. With Altitude, they seek to make their task a bit faster and create a bigger impact in the same amount of time.
Working alongside Jigsaw, is ‘Tech Against Terrorism’, a division of the UN who perform a similar role to Jigsaw. They have pooled in their experience and know-how and assisted in the development of the Altitude tool. But how will it help?
