Google Inc. will roll out a program in Indonesia to address offensive videos and those that incite violence and display hate speech on YouTube, Reuters reported, citing Ann Lavin, the company's director for public policy and government affairs in Southeast Asia and Greater China.
The program, Trusted Flagger, is expected to be available in the Southeast Asian country within two to three months. The tool will allow users to report contentious content on the Alphabet Inc. unit's video-sharing platform.
It is already running in the U.S., France, Germany and the U.K.
Facebook Inc. has also boosted its use of artificial intelligence to curb hate speech and offensive content.
