YouTube to auto-block videos violating age restrictions

The Google-owned video site is expanding its use of ML on those who either aren’t signed into a YouTube account or are signed in as a viewer under the age of 18.

YouTube on Tuesday said it will use machine learning (ML) to automatically restrict videos that are not appropriate for a section of its users.

The Google-owned video site is expanding its use of ML on those who either aren’t signed into a YouTube account or are signed in as a viewer under the age of 18.

As a result of using automation, YouTube will age restrict more videos. Currently, it has a human team that reviews videos inappropriate for younger viewers.

“Going forward, we will build on our approach of using machine learning to detect content for review, by developing and adapting our technology to help us automatically apply age-restrictions,” YouTube said in a blog post.
