YouTube blocked chess channel after mistaking blacks and whites for racist insults.
Not so long ago, a popular video hosting site blocked a channel that produces popular chess videos. The reason is the accusation of “harmful and dangerous” content. The channel had over a million subscribers.
The smart corporation Youtube uses artificial intelligence algorithms and human moderators to filter allegedly prohibited content in their opinion.
However, in this case, their disorderly moderators and algorithms written by amateurs cannot even distinguish hate speech from ordinary conversation.
This is not the first time in an independent study, experts have come to the conclusion that 80% of chess videos are marked by algorithms as allegedly inciting hatred.
In general, the global fight against fictitious racism has long reached truly absurd boundaries.
So many terms in software were replaced last year, potentially creating new vulnerabilities.
