    A new internet extremist blocking tool.

    UK unveils extremism blocking tool

    The UK government has unveiled a tool it says can accurately detect jihadist content and block it from being viewed.

    Home Secretary Amber Rudd told the BBC she would not rule out forcing technology companies to use it by law.

    Ms Rudd is visiting the US to meet tech companies to discuss the idea, as well as other efforts to tackle extremism.

    Thousands of hours of content posted by the Islamic State group was run past the tool, in order to "train" it to automatically spot extremist material.

    The ease as to how the extremist factions get onto the internet and into our homes has been known as a threat for a long time, but now - if the government choose to - this new bit of software could be laid out in order to catch any such sites and stop them from getting access to us.

    I hope that this is put into law as now that ISIS and all of the other extremist groups are being beaten in the field we are going to see them trying to radicalise our young people via the internet.

    If it really works, the quicker that the government force the internet carriers to install this software, the better.

    I agree to both.

    This is one way that high-tech computer software will be able to help us try to fight the rise of the Jehadists on the internet.
