The CEO of the world's most well-known video hosting website declared that it will employ new and improved digital algorithms as well as thousands of human moderators in order to shield its juvenile audience from disturbing content.
YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki says "some bad actors are exploiting" the Google-owned service to "mislead, manipulate, harass or even harm".
For instance, Wojcicki says that YouTube will have 10,000 people working to address questionable content by 2018 - noting that human reviewers are essential to training the company's machine learning systems. In a Monday, Dec. 4, 2017, blog post, Wojcicki said that more than 10,000 workers will be helping curb videos that violate YouTube's policies from the platform.

"It's important we get this right for both advertisers and creators, and over the next few weeks, we'll be speaking with both to hone this approach". "But no matter what challenges emerge, our commitment to combat them will be sustained and unwavering".
