Find a Question:
YouTube and Facebook are working on auto-blocking extremist content “
YouTube and Facebook would work on systems to automatically extremist content, such as videos of the Islamic State, identify and block the same way as, for example, now comes with copyrighted material.
The companies make the news not officially known, possibly because their definition of what is soon and does not fall could be under the heading “extremist content” in the eyes of the public or other parties at odds with the freedom of expression. The information comes out through anonymous sources Reuters.
The moves come after US President Obama and European leaders requested the urgent companies to cooperate in combating extremist content, for example, the Islamic State. The US has for example already made a proposal for a system to throttle the content in the bud as much as possible, but Alphabet and Facebook are never served by control by governments. Instead, the companies see in a joint development organization that formulated the task of policy and strategy assumes. Whether there actually is, is not known at this time. According to sources, YouTube and Facebook would at least begin hashing in their eyes extremist content.Viewing:-109
