British Prime Minister Theresa May has urged the leaders of major industrial nations to pressurize technology firms in removing such extremist content from the web which are of harmful nature.
The 2017 G7 summit is to kick off on Friday in Taormina in Sicily, Italy, and May will be chairing a session there on counter-terrorism in the wake of Manchester bomb attack that killed many innocent people.
If believed to a senior Government official, May would be putting forward several proposals for G7 nations to make themselves more strong and adopt common approach in dealing with the industry.
May will argue while the ISIS is losing ground in Iraq and Syria, the terror threat is evolving and not disappearing and the fight is moving to the internet from battlefield.
She will call the industry has social responsibility to take down harmful content from the internet.
The Prime Minister may propose for developing tools that identify automatically the extremist content and delete those. Also, those users will be blocked who post such harmful material and also relevant authorities should be informed in order to take appropriate action.
May will also urge the tech companies must revise the industry guidelines to make more clear which materials are harmful.
The Friday’s summit follows NATO summit in Brussels on Thursday where United States President Donald Trump berated member states which failed meeting security alliance.
In the wake of Manchester attack May will be curtailing her G7 visit and to leave on the same evening and missing the final day.
