A software tool unveiled Friday aims to help online firms quickly find and eliminate extremist content used to spread and incite violence and attacks.Wallace said the group has had "collaborative discussions" with Internet firms and that "there has been a lot of interest".But he added that it would be up to each online operator to determine whether to use the software and how to implement it.Farid, who also spoke on the call, said he believes the new system would be an effective tool for companies which must now manually review each complaint on objectionable content.Farid said he developed the software with a grant from Microsoft, and that he and the Counter Extremism Project would work to provide it to online companies.
