France’s Macron, New Zealand’s Ardern host Paris summit against online extremism

French President Emmanuel Macron welcomes Jacinda Ardern at the Elysee Palace in Paris France

The Christchurch massacre "was truly unprecedented in its use of social media as a weapon in the attack and the subsequent spread of the terrorist's hateful message", Ardern said. As Vox notes, policing a network as large as Facebook for videos of shootings like Christchurch - which was broadcast live on the site and successfully uploaded by users some 200,000 times - is like "playing a game of whack-a-mole".

But the White House said in a statement the United States was "not now in a position to join the endorsement", although it added: "we continue to support the overall goals reflected in the call".

"We, along with our law enforcement partners, face significant challenges in identifying and disrupting [homegrown violent extremists] and domestic terrorists who seek to perform terrorist attacks within the United States", McGarrity said during the hearing on domestic terrorism.

"The terrorist attacks in Christchurch, New Zealand, in March were a horrifying tragedy".

Leaders of Jordan, Senegal, Indonesia and the European Commission were also present. Several other countries not present at the meeting added their endorsement.

Livestreaming is not the only video issue tech companies are battling when it comes to terrorism. Many monitors maintain that, despite positive statements, the companies still need to get better at regulating content. The tech companies, meanwhile, are offering their own ideas in a bid to shape the policy response.

Ardern is playing a central role in the Paris meetings, which she called a significant "starting point" for changes in government and tech industry policy. That may include cooperating on developing technology or expanding the use of shared digital signatures.

NZ Super Fund chief executive Matt Whineray said they expected to see stronger controls from tech companies to prevent objectionable content being posted online.

There is, however, a twist: this season of Black Mirror will apparently only feature three new episodes. At the end of December past year , Netflix released the interactive movie Black Mirror: Bandersnatch .

And they pledged to study how algorithms sometimes promote extremist content.

The social media giant made the announcement today ahead of a meeting of world leaders aimed at curbing online violence in the aftermath of the mosque killings in New Zealand.

"We will now apply a "one strike" policy to [Facebook] Live in connection with a broader range of offences".

In a statement, Facebook said that anyone sharing "violating content" like a statement from a terrorist group without context would be blocked from using Facebook Live for a set period, such as 30 days. That promotion happens on the president's Twitter feed, and it happens on so many Republicans' Twitter feeds that Twitter is afraid of stopping it and being accused of banning Republicans.

It plans to extend other restrictions in the coming weeks, including preventing the same people from creating ads on Facebook. The tech giant also announced that it will award research grants of $7.5 million to three American universities - Maryland, Cornell and California - to study and help detect manipulated media after Facebook failed to take down slight variants of the original Christchurch shooting video, which were circulating the platform for hours after the shooting. Zuckerberg, who was in France to meet Macron last week, will not be attending.

Ardern also said prior to the ban, New Zealand had "pretty permissive gun legislation", and while she thinks guns are necessary in some instances, she felt the laws went too far.

President Donald Trump speaks during the 38th Annual National Peace Officers' Memorial Service, at the U.S. Capitol, on May 15. "And it's a hard line to draw sometimes", Kerry said.
