The chief executive of YouTube has vowed to hire more staff and use cutting-edge machine learning technology to continue its fight against violent and extremist content.
YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki said "some bad actors are exploiting" the Google-owned service to "mislead, manipulate, harass or even harm".
In a blog post, Wojcicki said the company was already taking "aggressive action" on comments, and was testing new systems to counter threats that combine human and automated checks.
That's why it aims to appoint as many as 10,000 people across Google to review content that might violate its policies.
In November, confectionary maker Mondelez (NASDAQ:MDLZ), Lidl, Mars and other consumer goods producers joined the boycott after The Times newspaper found YouTube was showing clips of scantily clad children in conjunction with the ads major brands.
It was forced to adopt additional screening measures last month on its kid-friendly platform, YouTube Kids, after reports showed numerous videos there contained profanity and violence.
Ireland to finally start reclaiming Apple back taxes
According to the EU, the tax deal allowed Apple to pay nearly nothing in tax on its European profits between 2003 and 2014. Whether or not the original ruling gets overturned remains to be seen.
"Now, we are applying the lessons we've learned from our work fighting violent extremism content over the a year ago in order to tackle other problematic content", Wojcicki wrote.
The CEO of the world's most well-known video hosting website declared that it will employ new and improved digital algorithms as well as thousands of human moderators in order to shield its juvenile audience from disturbing content.
Earlier this year, advertisers fled the site after ads appeared next to extremist content.
"We are planning to apply stricter criteria, conduct more manual curation, while also significantly ramping up our team of ad reviewers to ensure ads are only running where they should", she wrote. Wojcicki said human reviewers are still necessary in the company's attempt to fix its child exploitation problem.
Wojcicki says that YouTube is taking lessons learned from the first wave of the Adpocalypse - which was ultimately triggered by violent and extremist content - and applying them to tackle other forms of problematic content (as well as video comments), including those that pose child safety concerns and feature hate speech.
Wojcicki said 180,000 people would have had to work 40 weeks to assess the same amount of content.
