YouTube is taking major steps to tackle concerns of predatory behavior by users in some videos and is also going after creators which target children or promote child abuse content.
“Over the past week, we disabled comments from tens of millions of videos that could be subject to predatory behavior. These efforts are focused on videos featuring young minors and we will continue to identify videos at risk over the next few months.”
It’s also working on a new AI classifier, that will detect and remove 2X more individual predatory comments. YouTube also said it had terminated certain channels that attempt to endanger children.
