The company said that:
“It would take a tougher position on videos containing supremacist or inflammatory religious content by issuing a warning and not monetizing or recommending them for user endorsements; even if they do not clearly violate its policies.”
For this purpose, Google will hire new engineering resources and use more latest technology in order to help identify extremist videos. It will also train new content classifiers so that such content can be quickly identified and then removed.
