Illegal video contents monitored on YouTube
The Korean Communications Commission [KCC] duly represented by its chairman Han Sang-hyuk had a video conference with Neal Mohan, Google’s Senior vice chairman because it was via this platform that it had been discussed that the tech giant’s video-sharing platform YouTube will work hand in hand with the Korean community to put on the radar for the be careful of faux news and avoid the dispatch of malicious content.
Apparently, South Korea has been notoriously painted for its increasing cadre in computerized sexual assault cases and activities as such; highly prohibited materials were dispersed using the social media as an open platform with little or no regulated access. Furthermore, the misinformation that has spread across the world just like the smoke of a burning volcano as regards Covid-19 has instituted the cooperation that the KCC chairman Han requested to possess with Google.
Earlier within the half-moon of this year, Google, using its AI [AI] based technology has taken down from YouTube thousands of videos whose content are associated with misleading or misinformation about corona virus. This was related by Sundar Pichai, CEO of Alphabet Inc. because the regulator has kept the tech giant on its radar for scrutiny this year. Also, a whooping sum of $720,000 has been imposed on Google as a fine thanks to its violation of local telecom laws which came to play because it didn’t correctly inform the YouTube Premium’s charged service subscribers.
Pichai’s statement during a blog post shows that since January 2020, several thousands of ads trying paint a much bigger misguided picture about the corona virus pandemic has been blocked by Google hence curbing the spread of rumors and malicious information. within the previous month, Google voluntarily corrected subscription practices on its YouTube Premium service in Korea, after it had been exposed to the KCC of the imbalance issued towards the users.
