Could AI have stopped or informed the US of the pending attacks? Probably. Truth is we probably would not have listened. Politics aside, the technology today is not fully trusted but should be a core component of our fight against terrorism. This will only further our capabilities and is rapidly changing the future of counter-terrorism.

Artificial intelligence (AI) transforms every aspect of our lives, but there are two areas where its effects have enormous paradoxical advantages and disadvantages: war and counter-terrorism. We have focused primarily on the jobs that AI will create in the very near future, and there is a lot of discussion about the potential benefits and risks of AI in these areas.

AI is increasingly being used to identify and remove terrorist content, but computers are unable to detect a credible threat that deserves escalation by law enforcement. Drones and artificial intelligence pose a particularly significant challenge in the fight against terrorism, as the technology to detect and remove terrorist material in real time does not yet exist. However, the AI’s ability to stop the spread of terrorist content is showing promise and is increasingly being used to identify and remove it.

We are looking for technologies that can help build a genuine national system that will address the root causes of terrorism and violent extremism in the United States. A natural first step would be to work together to determine how AI can help identify and improve the conditions that create terrorism and violent extremism at home, as well as emerging crises in other parts of the world.

We have broken the cycle of innovation and counter-terrorism and counter-terrorism. Terrorists simply cannot compete with this unprecedented innovation, and we must break it.

As we address the growing discourse about the threat of killer drones and AI attacks, security forces must consider the online methods terrorists use to disseminate training, information, propaganda, communicate with each other, recruit, radicalize, and organize events online, as well as the threats they pose to our democratic society. Terrorist organisations are highly likely to use AI to their advantage and do so, but we must counter this and prevent terrorists from exploiting this new technology in today’s dynamic information environment. Given the growing discourse on the fundamental threat that terrorism poses to democratic societies, it is important to assess the means that terrorists and their organizations need to end their use of AI, as Van Leeuwen explained when investigating incentives and motivations.

Terrorists, like us, are likely to benefit from the use of AI for their own benefit and that of other people in society.

The United States and its allies can counter the rising threat by preparing strong defenses against potential drone attacks, engaging defense industry and AI experts to warn of the threat, and supporting efforts to ban or stigmatize military applications of artificial intelligence. The international community could also seek to stigmatize and delegitimize AI and lethal autonomous weapons to sufficiently deter the use of terrorists. US government intelligence agencies should continue to prioritize AI, or lethal autonomous munitions, and identify their potential uses. Ultimately, the use of AI against terrorism is bearing increasing fruit and needs to be reinforced by manual checks by trained experts.

The war on global terrorism should be the top concern, but the technological responses we have today are not sufficient to deal with the scale, potential, and severity of the threat. Of course, technology is an important part of fighting the spectre of transnational terrorism, but creating an arsenal of anti-terror technologies that are both practical and affordable and that meet the threats of 21st-century terrorism is frightening. Law enforcement technologies developed in the United States and its allies over the past few decades are simply insufficient to deal with today’s strategic realities.

Terrorist networks will continue to take advantage of the artificial intelligence arms race, and terrorist groups are deadly with autonomous weapons for three reasons. I believe that integrating AI into counter-terrorism, such as integrated triangulation of shootings, will ultimately lead to a new era in which terrorists will find that they will not even attempt an attack. AI will enable them to threaten physical security in new ways, making it even more difficult to tackle the current challenges of terrorism.

Facebook has acknowledged that some people have questioned the effectiveness of fighting terrorism online in the wake of recent terrorist attacks, and Facebook’s announcement does not explicitly mention that pressure. What makes it attractive to prevent terrorist content from reaching social media is its great effectiveness and the moral and regulatory signals that can be found in the company’s terms of use.

Despite Facebook’s increased efforts, we know that the effective fight against terrorism and violent extremism is progressing and cannot be achieved alone. We are committed to working with industry, governments, educational institutions and NGOs to develop a common understanding of the context in which terrorist or violent extremist content is published and to improve technology to detect and remove it more effectively and efficiently.

Technology can investigate and prevent terror and crime by taking into account the latest technological innovations. The best way to prevent terrorist financing should be through a knowledge-based system, such as the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning
