6:15 pm
reason for cures we're all shocked it's awful. many people in our community and they are. sure of that will remain active in. the community has long been afraid of violent attacks by right wing extremists the cons thought saw you arrive at work and you just don't know what the situation might be. you're always afraid that someone might be there you know not exactly for me but such things really do happen. this this so the assassination attempt in hull or just the presence of neo nazis in general. here or here there's always fear. amongst the. death threats images of hitler found in their mayor box this is everyday life for the deaths our community but direct attacks and
6:16 pm
vandalism with swastikas also take place. this is what we have to live with or. recover we can't change the situation. what can we do. the jewish community and how it's small they have no budget for security measures that's why vessel man sent a letter to sex in the un hurts ministry of the interior but it refused to give financial support. removed we have to undertake security measures there's no other option this give is about him and the safety of the school security is expensive but our members' lives are more valuable than security measures. if something should happen who would be to blame. after the attack and how the police car was stationed in front of them getting someone and his colleagues to not know how long it would be that. was part of a disturbing trend with the sort of instances footage of the attack was live
6:17 pm
streamed on a popular gaming site twitch experts fear is part of this. growing trend that social media platforms are struggling to deal with the deadly report called mosman contents were welcomed. with the basics what twitch have you heard of twitter it's a lot of people using this it's a streaming video platform is actually known by amazon this is used by gamers to mostly live stream video games but in this case it was used by the alleged attacker in hollow as as people know he was wearing a helmet with some sort of video camera attached and he streamed this attack allegedly in a 1st person shooter style way to make it look like a video game luckily according to twitch the company only 5 people watched that video live from there here's what twitch says happened with that video this is from their twitter account they say recording now of that stream was viewed by approximately 2000 people on the platform in the 30 minutes then took for the video
6:18 pm
to be flagged and removed by twitch so it was taken down just half an hour later which has actually gotten some praise for the relative speed that the company was able to react and take down that video in fact the prime minister of new zealand just send our dern praise them as well of course many believe that the hollis shooter was inspired by those attacks on the 2 mosques in christchurch new zealand that. massacre was also live streamed in a similar method so in the crush of attacks that was on facebook presumably tech companies have now learned lessons as they have taken some big steps since march when that christ church shooting took place the video of the christ church attack was also only viewed a few times about $200.00 times when it was live the problem was facebook took a long time to react and take that archive video down it was then uploaded more than a quarter of a 1000000 times in different places on facebook it spread all over the internet you
6:19 pm
know after that christ church shooting the prime minister our journey of new zealand she brought together these tech companies at the summit and they pledged to do a better job of combat in this kind of online extremism they poured more money into an organization that's called the global internet forum to counter terrorism so microsoft google facebook and amazon all part of that after this most recent shooting they work together through this organization twitch created something called a hash now this is like a digital fingerprint of a video they shared that with all these other tech companies and that was how they were able to collaborate to find the video and take it down because i think the point that you've made that out of the most is that it's not the live it's the people watching it afterwards i mean it seems extraordinary that tech companies can't stop the 2nd phase yeah i mean there's a lot of difficulties that you know 1st of all once a video is out there it's hard to get things off the internet right the spreads
6:20 pm
into all the dark corners of the internet additionally you know they're being shared now with encrypted messaging apps like whatsapp and those are undetectible you can't go in there and take them down right now twitch like a lot of other tech companies relies on humans to moderate its platform they're looking into developing an artificial intelligence to essentially detect something as it's happening and remove it immediately but if you look at the footage. twitch is all video games a lot of shooting happening computers right now can't tell the difference between a video game and real life violence facebook is struggling with the same problem so the future is going to be artificial intelligence but right now the technology just isn't there to be able to do that. thank you. want to sports on the fallout from the nike coach alberto salazar for doping violations continues to shape the world athletics and nike is world famous or a good project powerhouse for
