YouTube says over 10000 workers will help curb shady videos

YouTube will boast more than 10,000 staff whose job is to track down extremist, violent and predatory content on the site, Google has announced.

In a blog post yesterday clearly attempting to address these concerns, Youtube's chief executive Susan Wojcicki (pictured top) said the platform was "taking actions to protect advertisers and creators from inappropriate content". Adidas has said the situation is "completely unacceptable" while Mars, along with other companies, has pulled advertising until safeguards are in place.

YouTube said Monday that it is also taking steps to try to reassure advertisers that their ads won't run next to gross videos.

The addition of more crew to the reviewing panel will help YouTube to provide more data for supply, and improve its machine learning software.

In a blog post, Ms Wojcicki explained: "Human reviewers remain essential to both removing content and training machine learning systems because human judgment is critical to making contextualised decisions on content".

She said this in turn was helping to train its machine learning technology to identify similar videos in the future.

Not only does this involve boosting its terror tosspot and extremist ingrate spotting team, but it will also see Google put its machine learning prowess into further action to help the humans sniff out violent videos.

As for speed of removal, incoming technology will allow YouTube to take down almost 70% of violent extremist content within eight hours of upload and almost half of it in two hours.
