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

Google earlier this year announced that it would give £1mln to fund projects that tackle extremism in the UK. The site also wants to weed out content that endangers children.

The move is part of a broader effort by the company to improve its protection of users and rid the video-sharing website of extremist or offensive content after widespread criticism of its policing policies.

"We need an approach that does a better job determining which channels and videos should be eligible for advertising", she said.

The chief executive of YouTube has vowed to hire more staff and use cutting-edge machine learning technology to continue its fight against violent and extremist content.

It is hard to know at this stage whether machine learning can adequately flag disturbing content aimed at children, as much of this type of content could be hard for an algorithm to recognise as disturbing or creepy, which is why human content reviewers are needed.
