YouTube removed record number of videos after AI takeover

Aug 28, 2020 10:30 IST

YouTube said that it has removed a record number of videos in the second quarter of 2020 due to an increased use of artificial intelligence in its content review efforts following the Covid-19 pandemic. The popular video sharing platform removed a total of 11.4 million videos between April and June, out of which 10.85 million were flagged by automated systems. Over one-third of the videos were taken down due to child safety risks, 28 per cent for scams and was followed by nudity and sexual content. YouTube‘s latest Community Guidelines Enforcement Report also mentions that the AI system took down 99.2 per cent of the total 2.1 million comments. On the other hand, YouTube made more staff available for appeals and reinstatements, both of which doubled as compared to the last quarter.
