Communication & Technology

ISD leverages proprietary software and communications strategies to push back against extremism

We have pioneered the application of data, technology and marketing tactics to mount a proportional response to extremist propaganda and messaging. Our proprietary influencer mapping tools inform how content is created, targeted, and measured for impact. Our programmes seek to innovate and build the technology and communications infrastructure to empower civic response to the ever more sophisticated communications machineries of those that seek to divide. ISD leads major innovative programmes with Facebook, Google and Microsoft and works to inform policy and practice in relation to online hate speech, polarisation, misinformation, extremism and terrorism.
