About the episode:
Adam Hadley is the director of Tech Against Terrorism. Partnered with the UN’s Counter-Terrorism Executive Directorate, they work with the global tech sector to tackle terrorist use of the internet whilst respecting human rights. Adam is also CEO of QuantSpark, a data science consultancy which advises the world’s most complex organisations how to use their data efficiently. In this in-depth conversation, Adam describes how small platforms are being used by violent extremists to spread propaganda, argues there should be greater focus on the roots of violent behaviour instead of removing online content as a solution, and explains his mission for policy makers, government and the tech industry to work collaboratively to benefit society.
