Israeli Government Launches AI Command Center To Catalog and Report “Antisemitic” Posts Online

They're afraid

Wikileaks has recently released a video of a government conference in Israel discussing a command center in Tel-Aviv with artificial intelligence used to find and fight online "antisemitism". They claim they have AI that combs all of Facebook and Twitter for potentially antisemitic content, it initially pulls 200,000 "suspect antisemitic" posts a day on average, and a learning AI narrows it down to 10,000 actually "antisemitic" posts they find per day. It's doubtful they have access to private Twitter and Facebook accounts, but with these people, you never know.

The information will be made public to attempt to discourage and highlight "antisemitism", by being able to point out to "top 10 antisemitic tweets and twitters (leaderboards amirite?)" and pointing out which cities have the most "antisemitic" internet activity coming from them. Again, we don't know if they're just using what is posted in your account location or if Twitter/Facebook actually give them the data for it. They're probably just using the info on your account. The speaker in the video says making this data available "hopefully will shame people into acting better."

But it's not just shaming. He goes on to say that the AI can act, for example by finding specific posts "calling for antisemitic action" and then notifying local police and intelligence agencies. He specifically mentions European countries, where there are hate speech laws in most places. These people are setting up bots to find people and get them arrested for "hate speech" against Jews. He says "calling for antisemitic action" in the video is why authorities would be notified, but I think anyone paying attention realizes it will get ramped up to anyone talking about Jews negatively once they know they can get away with it. They don't want people talking about them, and if they can get people arrested for doing it in Europe, why wouldn't they?

He says in the hotspots identified with lots of "antisemitic" activity they could "call up the mayor and say 'Do something about this.'" Local Jewish councils have a lot of clout in most cities, if the local police aren't making arrests, maybe those councils will get a phone call from Tel-Aviv, and they'll start nagging the mayor until the numbers go down. Police are pretty generally strict on hate speech in the big cities, but in the somewhat smaller ones? Not so much. Modern politicians think it's a bad look to let Jews claim they aren't doing enough to fight antisemitism, and they might cave to pressure and tell the police to try to stop it with hate speech arrests.

This still seems to be in its beginning stages, but it could grow into something pretty sinister. They're most likely just gathering publicly available data, but if more people start talking about Jews this idea could get taken pretty far. Social media websites might bow to pressure and give more info to these people. A white pill to take from this is that they feel the need to do it to protect themselves. Lots of people are waking up.
