Growing fears of terrorism in the U.S. following the attacks in Paris and San Bernardino are prompting calls for technology firms to join in the fight against ISIS and other groups. President Obama said Sunday he would “urge high-tech and law enforcement leaders to make it harder for terrorists to use technology to escape from justice.”
TIME deputy technology editor Alex Fitzpatrick lays out three ways Silicon Valley could make life harder for ISIS here: a less intrusive way of monitoring for threatening messages on social networks, a more intrusive way of providing a so-called “backdoor” for law enforcement, and a most intrusive way of giving law enforcement full database access.
Which ones, if any, do you think Silicon Valley should pursue. Cast your vote below, and we invite you to leave your thoughts in the comments section.
