YouTube CEO Talks about Increasing Regulatory Staff

CEO

Here’s a shocker, the CEO of YouTube, Susan Wojckicki has talked about increasing regulatory staff and to protect YouTube. YouTube plans to add more human moderators and to increase its use of machine learning to cut down on content that violates the video-sharing site’s policies.

The CEO mentions in a blog post published Monday evening that Google will increase the number of employees reviewing content to more than 10,000 in 2018. Mentioning that they have learned from their past experiences taking down “Extremist” content and applying it to other “Problematic” content.

The changes come in response to the “Adpocalypse 3.0”, where YouTube Content Creators suffered a decrease in revenue again. This was due to the fact that there were videos with children that were the target of sexually inappropriate comments.

YouTube has since killed a lot of accounts and removed more than 150,000 videos from the website. Turning off comments in over 625,000 videos targeted by alleged child predators. As much as some content creators would like to stay away from this, the problem is too big for them to stay out of.

The company will also focus on training its machine-learning algorithm to help human reviewers identify and terminate accounts and comments violating the site’s rules. Wojckicki has also mentioned that they will take a new approach to advertising on YouTube.

“We are planning to apply stricter criteria, conduct more manual curation, while also significantly ramping up our team of ad reviewers to ensure ads are only running where they should,” she wrote.

This could be seen in two ways, for one, Content Creators will now get a swifter resolution for monetary issues. However, this could also mean that more aggressive methods of censorship could be used and, depending on the staff that’s hired, we could see even more unjustified takedowns against creators of content like Horror, much like After Dark Analysis a few months ago.

I always wanted to be a journalist who listens. The Voice of the Unspoken and someone heavily involved in the gaming community. From playing as a leader of a competitive multi-branch team to organizing tournaments for the competitive scene to being involved in a lot of gaming communities. I want to keep moving forward as a journalist.

Helldivers 2 players now have a new major order that, if completed, will bring the EXO-49 Emancipator Exosuit into action. This is something we’ve been looking forward to since March, when we first caught a grainy glimpse of the machine in action. We loved the older EXO-45 Patriot model, which has a Gatling gun and a bunch of powerful missiles, but we could see ourselves going in a different direction, especially when we were up against the Automatons.

They will have to put in some work, though, as is always the case. Helldivers need to free an Automaton “Petafactory” in order to start making these good horses for mass deployment. It’s time to teach the people of Varylia 5 how to run a managed democracy, if only for our own good.

Are you a fan of the EXO-45 Patriot mech, or are you having trouble fitting it into your tried-and-true plans? What do you think about the EXO-49 amnesty? Does it make you want to? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Hideo Kojima is George Miller’s first choice for a video game adaptation of Mad Max

George Miller, who directed the Mad Max movies, thinks that people are ready for another adventure game. However, only a game made at “the highest level” by an auteur, like Hideo Kojima of Metal Gear Solid and Death Stranding fame, will do.

It’s been said that Kojima thinks of George Miller as a god, and the Mad Max series is his personal Bible. On paper, this seems like a perfect match. Miller said that he would “never ask” the famous game designer to make such a game because he is sure that Kojima already has “so much fantastic stuff in his own head.” The “will they/won’t they” moment was caught on camera on the red carpet at the premiere of Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga.

The most recent Mad Max video game, which came out in 2015, “wasn’t as good as I wanted it to be,” says Miller. We hope Miller or at least one of his employees can get these two movie moguls to work on something together. We are sure Kojima would be very pleased.
