Met Police to share firearms footage with Facebook to stop future Christchurch-style mass shooting videos

Video of the massacre was copied from the original stream and was still being uploaded to other social media sites 10 hours after the shootings.
Announcing its partnership with the Met Police yesterday, Facebook said it initially missed the live stream of the slaughter as its artificial intelligence systems had not seen enough footage of first-person violence to recognise what it was.
The Met Police said that from next month it would supply Facebook with footage of officers from its Firearms Command training with live weapons training in simulated terrorist incidents and hostage situations.
The force said the exercises took place on land, public transport and water, meaning they would provide Facebook with footage from a range of scenarios. 
Neil Basu, the Met Police’s Assistant Commissioner for Specialist Operations, said: “The technology Facebook is seeking to create could help identify firearms attacks in their early stages and potentially assist police across the world in their response to such incidents.”
The Met Police footage is also to be distributed through the Home Office to other technology companies developing software to detect mass shootings broadcast on social media.
The partnership comes as Facebook said it had taken down more than 26 million pieces of terrorist content, including from the Islamic State and Al Qaeda, over the last two years.  
Stephanie McCourt, Law Enforcement Outreach Lead UK, Facebook: “This partnership with the Met Police will help train our AI systems with the volume of data needed to identify these incidents. And we will remain committed to improving our detection abilities and keeping harmful content off Facebook.
