Title: AI-based framework for supporting micro (and small) HSPs on the report and removal of online terrorist content

Programme: ISF

Call: ISF-2021-AG-TCO

Grant agreement No: 101080090

Brief description

The ALLIES project aims at supporting micro (and small) HSPs in achieving compliance with the new requirements and obligations under the TCO Regulation. To achieve this, ALLIES adopts four main approaches, each of which targeting skill development and innovation. These four pillars will be respectively focused on (1) learning and awareness raising, (2) technical development and adaptation, (3) training and education, and (4) experience sharing and reporting mechanisms. Both the learning and awareness raising initiatives will further expand the capacity of TCO Regulation by designing a taxonomy of online terrorist related behaviors. The second pillar will be focused on the development of a specific set of AI-boosted user-friendly tools that will enhance small HSPs capabilities on more accurately recognizing and removing suspicious content. The training and education aspects focus will not only rest on the TCO Regulation content, but also on familiarisation activities with the developed tools. The fourth approach aims at creating a safe online environment where end users anonymously share their experiences as well as useful data in addition to a risk assessment module and unified reporting form for terrorist-related contend and behaviour. Complementing and cooperating with each other, these four pillars will not only support HSPs, but will also contribute to the fulfilment of the TCO Regulation objectives.

Our role

As a research and development driven SME, will be the leader of WP5 and will be responsible for the definition of the technical requirements, the federated models, the knowledge graphs as well as the implementation of the AI tool and the reasoning module. NVCR will actively participate in the research activities and will strongly contribute to the implementation activities and all legal and ethical aspects of the action, especially in relation to the use of data within the project and through the results.
