For the final episode of Season 2 of the podcast we’re taking a closer look at a tool developed by Tech Against Terrorism called the Terrorist Content Analytics Platform (TCAP). We learn what the TCAP is, why it was set up, and how it’s used to automate the swift detection and removal of verified terrorist content on tech platforms.
During the episode, Mariusz Żurawek explains how he struggled to single-handedly moderate extremist content on his platform JustPaste.it. We discuss how terrorist exploitation of the whole online ecosystem, especially smaller platforms like Mariusz’, inspired the development of the TCAP. We also chat to the TCAP team about the work they’re doing to add more functionality to the platform and about some of the processes that are in place to ensure it’s as transparent as possible to its stakeholders and the wider public.
Join Anne Craanen as she speaks to Jacob Berntsson who’s the Head of Policy & Research at Tech Against Terrorism, Sophie Laitt who’s a Senior Product Manager at Tech Against Terrorism and Mariusz Żurawek, the founder of JustPaste.it - a website which uses the TCAP to help it take down potentially harmful terrorist content from its site.
