This research explores the implications of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in deciphering the multifarious manifestations of online Radicalisation, Extremism, and possible recruitment. It analyses AI's capabilities in disseminating positive representations and counter-narratives, its instrumental role in analysing positive imagery, optimising platform reach, and its pivotal contribution to global efforts to combat online extremism. However, AI's dualistic nature underscores the need for its ethical and responsible utilisation to curb extremist content effectively. It necessitates the development of balanced,nuanced, and coherent approaches, amalgamating enhanced analytical paradigms, collaborative efforts, ethical frameworks, strategic insight, and diversified applications. The formulation of such multifaceted approaches and cohesive strategies is paramount in navigating the intricate terrains of online extremism and in enhancing societal resilience against the proliferation of extremist ideologies. The study concludes that the strategic and ethical deployment of AI technologies is pivotal in reshaping digital discourse and in the collective endeavour to counterbalance extremist ideologies.
