YouTube: We’ve manually reviewed 1M+ videos to improve brand safety processes

Since announcing efforts to restrict violent extremist content in June, YouTube released an update on their brand safety initiatives this week. The Google-owned company says its teams have manually reviewed more than a million videos to improve the flagging technology being used to monitor content. YouTube also says that during the past month, over 83 percent of the videos removed because of violent content were taken down without a human having to flag it. “We’ve always used a mix of human flagging and human review together with technology to address controversial content on YouTube,” writes the YouTube team. “These videos remain on YouTube, but they are behind a warning interstitial, aren’t recommended, monetized, and don’t have key features including comments, suggested videos, and likes,” says YouTube.
