YouTube to hire more screeners to seek out offensive video

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

"Human reviewers remain essential to both removing content and training machine learning systems because human judgment is critical to making contextualized decisions on content", declared YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki, who explained that "moderators have manually reviewed almost 2m videos for violent extremist content since June, helping train machine-learning systems to identify similar footage in the future", according to the news outlet.

"We are also taking aggressive action on comments, launching new comment moderation tools and in some cases shutting down comments altogether", she said.

Reuters reported last month that several major advertisers - such as Lidl and Mars - had pulled ads from the platform over "clips of scantily clad children".

Wojcicki said the company will apply lessons learned from combating violent and extremist videos to other "problematic" videos.

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. Last month, a number of high-profile brands suspended YouTube and Google advertising after reports revealed that they were placed alongside videos filled with exploitative and sexually explicit comments about children. Since June, Wojcicki says, YouTube's teams have manually reviewed almost 2 million videos for violent extremist content - with more than 150,000 videos ultimately being taken down during this time. Equally, we want to give creators confidence that their revenue won't be hurt by the actions of bad actors.

"Because we have seen these positive results, we have begun training machine-learning technology across other challenging content areas, including child safety and hate speech", she added.

"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".

The technology has reviewed and flagged content that would have taken 180,000 people working 40 hours a week to assess, according to Wojcicki.

"We will be talking to creators over the next few weeks to hone this new approach", YouTube CEO said.
