8.28 million videos removed by YouTube in final quarter of 2017

The video site also details that leveraging ML requires more people to review content, with YouTube having staffed full-time specialists with expertise in violent extremism, counterterrorism, and human rights, as well as expanded regional expert teams.

Responding to the repeated criticism, YouTube has removed 8.3 million videos overall in the last three months of 2017, according to its first quarterly report.

Prince William and Kate Middleton show off their newborn son
They then returned inside to put their newborn son in his auto seat before driving away towards their home Kensington Palace . The couple left the hospital's Lindo Wing hours later, giving the world its first glimpse of the newest royal baby .

What's really intriguing about the report though is the fact that it clearly states that YouTube makes use of machine learning to flag and remove videos.

YouTube said, "Our investment in machine learning to help speed up removals is paying off across high-risk, low-volume areas - like violent extremism - and in high-volume areas, like spam". Of 8 million videos in a three month period bringing last October, 6.7 million were first flagged for review by machines.

Philadelphia 76ers: Should the Sixers be considered the East favorites?
Al-Farouq Aminu scored 27, Damian Lillard added 19 points and Jusuf Nurkic had 18 points and 11 rebounds before fouling out. The series has been filled with physical play and several bumps in the road, yet the Sixers lead 3-1 in the series.

In Reporting History dashboard, users can check the status of flagged videos as announced by YouTube. Perhaps unsurprisingly, sexually explicit videos accounted for the most user-generated complaints in Q4 2017 at nine million flags.

Additionally, the video sharing platform revealed the top 10 countries from which it receives the most human flagged video reports. It takes thousands of trusted flaggers and users to assist with the platform's moderation, and with over 400 hours of video being uploaded every minute, enforcing strict guidelines is definitely an uphill task for YouTube's staff and AI systems.

Last year, YouTube said it wanted to increase the number of people "working to address violative content" to 10,000 across Google by the end of 2018. "We introduced machine learning flagging in June 2017", it noted. YouTube says that in response to criticism that it has been slow to remove videos that violate its guidelines, it is making great progress; previous year only 8% of videos flagged and removed for containing violent extremism were removed with less than 10 views.
