139 goonmaster The article doesn't distinguish the models accuracy in terms of true positive, false positive, true negative or false negative. Just 99%. At a guess I would say it has a high false negative rate, to boost its true positive rate for headlines.
41 inoffensive1 How does it tell good terrorists from bad terrorists?
9 YukonCornelius7 CNN cannot even recognize North Korean propaganda at the Olympics
18 SoCo_cpp AI magically recognizes with 99% accuracy an abstract concept that cannot even be described or characterized with even any accuracy.....I'm more than a little skeptical of these ridiculous claims.
5 LeepII Terrorist Propaganda = Information my government didnt write.
2 stixx_nixon Fox News is fucked
1 cubliclemonkey I guess Fox News is in trouble.
1 YeshilPasha Doh, from the subtitles obviously.
1 AmericanKamikaze The Original article from a few days ago said the government is touting it as being 99% effective. But there’s been no proof. And I’m sure it was even less that 99%
1 KarmaInFlow Reminds me of a thing I forgot to save last week (for this reason) where they have little mini drones kill you based on the hashtags you tweet.
1 tuseroni ok, but what percent of communications are terrorist communications...that's...important. if, say...20% was terrorist communications and this found them with 99% accuracy, so: p(e|h)=(.99*.2)/(.2*.99+.8*.01)=0.96, or about 96% accuracy...pretty good..if 20% of all communications were terrorists...if...say...0.01% of all communications were terrorist though: p(e|h)=(0.99*0.0001)/(0.0001*0.99+0.9999*.01)=0.009 or about 0.98% accuracy. so the question is: what percent of communications are terrorist communications?
1 Jeff-Stelling Not seen any terrorist propaganda in months, not actively looking for it but has been a while
