YouTube Blocks 75 Percent of Extremist Videos before Publication
YouTube Blocks 75 Percent of Extremist Videos before Publication. YouTube is getting better at automatically blocking videos with extremist or terrorist content. Three out of four videos with terrorist motives were removed without the intervention of people.
That made YouTube known on Tuesday. The success is due to the development of self-learning computer systems. Through the use of machine learning, unwanted images are continuously discovered better and faster.
YouTube will upload more than 400 hours of footage every minute.
Google’s video site works to determine which content should be blocked, along with organizations involved in studying and combating radicalization, terrorism and hatred.
YouTube is also making stricter action against movies that are not illegal according to current rules but are identified as potential threats. Videos with, for example, a controversial religious or racist message get a separate place, which is harder to find.
YouTube also recently sends users who search for terror videos to videos with just the opposite anti-terrorist message.
