mountain view - YouTube is getting better at shutting down videos with violent extremist or terrorist content. The company, part of Google, announced Tuesday that last month more than 75 percent of this content was removed before a viewer could call the appeal to appeal.

That success is due to the prosperous development of self-lingering computer systems. The technology used in machine learning makes unwanted images ever better and faster. That's one of YouTube's biggest challenges, uploading more than 400 hours of footage every minute. To this end, cooperation has been extended with organizations involved in studying and combating radicalization, terrorism and hate speech.

YouTube is also making stricter action against movies that are not illegal according to current rules, but are identified as potential threats. Videos with, for example, a controversial religious or racist message get a separate place, which is harder to find.
