Over 10000 Staff To Help Weed Out Extremist Content On YouTube

YouTube Will Add More Human Moderators To Stop Its Child Exploitation Problem

"Since June, our trust and safety teams have manually reviewed almost 2 million videos for violent extremist content, helping train our machine-learning technology to identify similar videos in the future", wrote Susan Wojcicki.

Wojcicki said the company would take "aggressive action" by launching new comment moderation tools.

YouTube last week updated its recommendation feature to spotlight videos users are likely to find the most gratifying, brushing aside concerns that such an approach can trap people in bubbles of misinformation and like-minded opinions.

Finally, while YouTube already works closely with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) and the Independent Women's Forum (IWF), it plans to expand its partner network of academics, industry groups, and subject matter experts next year.

The company is recruiting thousands of reviewers to reduce the amount of "problematic content" on its video platform.

Earlier this year, advertisers fled the site after ads appeared next to extremist content.

YouTube has since killed a lot of accounts and removed more than 150,000 videos from the website.

YouTube is now facing fire for publishing videos targeted at children with sexual and violent themes, for which the company said that it is going to substantially increase the amount of people supervising the contents in 2018. Equally, we want to give creators confidence that their revenue won't be hurt by the actions of bad actors.

"We are planning to apply stricter criteria and conduct more manual curation, while also significantly ramping up our team of ad reviewers to ensure ads are only running where they should".

In the era of machine learning artificial intelligence technology, the YouTube folks have resolved to win the clash against racists and violent content that they should rely much on better obsolete human beings.

She said adding more people to identify inappropriate content will provide more data to supply and potentially improve its machine learning software.
