YouTube Removed 8 Million Movies in Last 3 Months of 2017
YouTube Removed 8 Million Movies in Last 3 Months of 2017. YouTube has removed more than eight million movies worldwide in the last three months of 2017. They did not comply with the laws of the site, published by Forbes News.
It was mainly about spam and porn. It is the first time that YouTube comes with such figures.
More videos have been removed because more artificial intelligence has been used in recent months to track down bad films. Such smart systems found approximately 6.7 million deleted videos, and not by people. And three-quarters of those movies had already been removed before anyone could see them.
More than half of the films calling for violent extremism were viewed less than ten times when they were erased. At the start of 2017, this was true for only 8 percent of all those films.
The video service, a subsidiary of Google, wants to publish every quarter how much is being removed. YouTube also wants to keep track of how many comments have been removed from movies and how long it took for something to be removed. Users will soon be able to see what YouTube has done with videos they’ve signed up.
One billion users upload every minute, above 400 hours of video. It is not known how many videos are online in total.
