YouTube, Wikipedia team up on conspiracy videos

She underlined that YouTube is not a news organization.
YouTube intends to present an alternative viewpoint to videos questioning science or describing conspiracies about events such as the United States moon landing.
According to Wojcicki, the feature is set to roll out in the coming weeks.
YouTube, which has faced a barrage of brand safety controversies in recent months, will turn to the free online encyclopedia Wikipedia in an effort to dilute the influence of conspiracy-driven videos on its platform. The video accused David Hogg, a survivor of the shooting who has since spoken out for gun control, of being a "crisis actor". The linked information will be applied only to popular conspiracy topics, it seems. "Our goal is to start with a list of internet conspiracies listed on the internet where there is a lot of active discussion on YouTube", she said, as reported by Wired. YouTube's recommendation algorithm itself, additionally, has been shown to push viewers down rabbit holes of the most vile, radical content regardless of political affiliation.
"If there is an important news event, we want to be delivering the right information", Wojcicki said on stage.
In the case of the Parkland "conspiracy actors" video, YouTube ultimately removed it, though by that time it had already garnered thousands of views.
In breaking news situations, the web's speed becomes a double-edged sword for tech companies trying to combat fake news and disinformation: Will YouTube be able to keep up with the spread of conspiracy theory videos during the next major news event?
