Google has “ghosted” thousands of channels, according to a report from MTV News.
The company has long claimed that its search algorithm can spot fake content and it’s now revealed that it can even spot ghost videos and videos of the same subject, the report said.
However, Google has not provided details about how the search engine detects the fake content, which it believes is likely to be uploaded by its algorithm.
The technology used by Google to identify fake content is similar to what it uses to spot video of copyrighted content.
In its 2016 annual report, Google said it had “taken steps to identify and remove content that was posted by third parties.”
However, it has yet to provide details on how it does this.
In March, YouTube announced that it would begin blocking fake content on YouTube, but it has not publicly revealed how it will do this.
Last month, Google’s parent company Alphabet said it would take “appropriate legal action” against video-sharing sites that allow users to upload videos without their permission.
The companies are reportedly planning to file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission in the coming weeks.
