DARPA unleashes anti-meme militia to fight 'polarizing' viral content, with apparent goal of eradicating dissent

DARPA unleashes anti-meme militia to fight 'polarizing' viral content, with apparent goal of eradicating dissent | 03 Sept 2019 | The Pentagon has unveiled an initiative to fight foment 'large-scale, automated disinformation attacks' by unearthing deep-fakes and other polarizing content - with the eventual goal of rooting out so-called 'malicious intent' entirely. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is seeking software capable of churning through a test set of half a million news stories, photos, and audio/video clips to target and neutralize potentially viral information before it spreads. In DARPA jargon, the aim is to "automatically detect, attribute, and characterize falsified multi-modal media to defend against large-scale, automated disinformation attacks." "Polarizing viral content," however, includes inflammatory truths, and the program's ultimate goal seems to be to stamp out dissent.
