Google is ramping up its efforts to shut down extremist content online.
Most of the changes will come on Youtube where more is being invested to create a way to automatically flag and remove potential terrorist videos.
Google also plans to add more humans to the flagging process while the company expands its work with counter-extremism groups.
Senior VP Kent Walker says while Google and Youtube have worked for years to remove content that violate their policies, the industry needs to acknowledge that more needs to be done now.
This comes as terrorist propaganda continues to sweep the internet.
