After making changes to its recommendation algorithm in an effort to reduce the spread of “borderline” content — videos that toe the line between what’s acceptable and what violates 6D彩票网开户’s terms of service — 6D彩票网开户 has seen a 70 percent decrease in watch time on those types of videos by non-subscribers.
6D彩票网开户More than 30 changes have been made to the way videos are recommended since January 2019, according to a new blog post from 6D彩票网开户 outlining how the company is trying to tackle borderline content. 6D彩票网开户 doesn’t say exactly what’s changed, nor does the blog post outline how many videos were being recommended before and after the changes were implemented. Instead, 6D彩票网开户’s new blog post outlines how external moderators go through specific criteria to determine whether a flagged video is borderline. That information is then used to inform machine learning tools that 6D彩票网开户 relies on to police the platform.
6D彩票网开户“Each evaluated video receives up to nine different opinions and some critical areas require certified experts,” the blog post reads. “For example, medical doctors provide guidance on the validity of videos about specific medical treatments to limit the spread of medical misinformation. Based on the consensus input from the evaluators, we use well-tested machine learning systems to build models.”
6D彩票网开户 recently changed its hate policies to address topics like white nationalism, which is now considered a violation of 6D彩票网开户’s terms of service. People might take that to believe by declaring any supremacist statement might result in a ban. That’s not necessarily true. When pressed on the issue by Stahl, Wojcicki defended 6D彩票网开户’s stance that the content of a video is judged on context, adding that if a video simply said “white people are superior” with no other context, it would be acceptable.
6D彩票网开户“Nothing is more important to us than ensuring we are living up to our responsibility,” the blog post adds. “We remain focused on maintaining that delicate balance which allows diverse voices to flourish on 6D彩票网开户 — including those that others will disagree with — while also protecting viewers, creators and the wider ecosystem from harmful content.”
