Writer James Bridle points out in a blog post that the existing filths featuring in YouTube are predominantly targeting the minors. He believes such obscene and vulgar activities assert negative connotation.
YouTube assures such videos are no longer on the run and are even not gaining any promotional proceeds. Additionally, the team formed by YouTube for such monetization is comprised of parents who are strong-willed to improvise the app and act lawfully for no further accusation.
However, critics deny YouTube’s efforts and says it is worthless to keep waiting for viewers to report the improper videos.
Earlier report shows that the prominent character such as Peppa Pig, performing vulgar activities, to scare away children was an unavoidable issue. Nevertheless, on deep analysis, Mr. Bridle exemplify videos which were not really erotic but were sinister, “disturbing” or otherwise inappropriate.
The algorithm of video generation complies with upsurge in capital.
Mr. Bridle’s statement affirms, "Stock animations, audio tracks, and lists of keywords being assembled in their thousands to produce an endless stream of videos." The protagonist characters of entertainment, like Spiderman, Elsa from Frozen are seen holding riffle, depicts clash and war. He also adds, "Someone or something or some combination of people and things is using YouTube to systematically frighten, traumatize, and abuse children, automatically and at scale."
Such videos are mainly on YouTube’s main site and is accessible in public mode. Thereby there implies no age restrictions. In addition, The Times reports that some videos even shows up in YouTube Kids.
YouTube plans to restrict access to videos having children’s characters which are flagged for having inappropriate for kids. Without logging in, user will not be able to watch such videos and must be older than 17.
YouTube tells The Verge that the access restriction action taken for flagged videos was not a direct response to recent press reports, but they are working on the same regards.
"We have built a world which operates at scale, where human oversight is simply impossible, and no manner of inhuman oversight will counter most of the examples I've used in this essay," concludes Mr. Bridle.
