MicrosoftÂ has outlined the steps the company plans to take with the use of digital technology and the Internet in an effortÂ to help counter terrorist activities online.
The company said FridayÂ it seeks toÂ tackleÂ terrorism-related content posted on its web services while it maintains the usersâ€™ rights to privacy, freedom of expression and the right to access information.
Microsoft added that there are two approaches it wants to implement in responding to terrorism online: address content and forge partnerships.
Microsoft also seeks to define terrorist content in accordance with the Consolidated United Nations Security Council Sanctions List and take down terrorism-related content from its services such as the Bing search engine, as demanded by local regulators.
The company added it wantsÂ to forge partnerships with nongovernmental organizations to help provide alternative narratives for search queries for terrorist content.
