Youtube is removing monetization from videos with LGBT related words, then reinstating funding when the words go away.
That is a problem. He insults pretty much everything so often with so much vitriol (and usually over the top) that you wind up putting a lot of energy into defending each topic. You can not just say 'xyz is offensive' and move on with what you were doing before. Still though, just because he and his minions have given up on basic decency does not mean the rest of us should.Trump. Trump fatigued. People still give a damn, but they're ... just ... so ... damned ... tired ... now.
Sometimes what comes out of an AI is a bit awkward. Like when they show a preference for cis male WASPs or things like neo-nazis and conspiracy theories.The problem we are witnessing here is what we'll get when we let an AI decide on such things. AIs are wonderful, because they are black boxes and so far nobody really understands how their inner workings exactly goes around, if anything wants wrong nobody is responsible, because nobody knows exactly what the AI is doing or not when.
An algorithm is a set of rules which you do apply to a problem to get the wanted result. If a problem is too difficult to grasp to come up with an algorithm, then people do use AI which is nothing else that you've got a problem plus expected result, but you do need a set of rules to work upon it. That's then the neural network.
And that's the problem with Youtube: of course it uses automatisms, and I won't be surprised if it would also use AI. But AI is only as good as being trained, and a trained network only solves the problem it was trained on, nothing more, e.g. a voice recognition network for "burger" won't be able to detect "wiener" and vice versa.
An AI is not aware, nor does it care about context. It only cares about what it was being trained on, and that's it. And if you do train it on what many peoples are complaining about, well then... such stuff might happen.
