Somebody interviewed Axel Voss, the thundercunt that is about to destroy our internet, and he said quote on quote:
“If I type ‘memes’ into google, google will recognize memes. So the filter is already working”

Please go die in a dirty corner with a smegma-ridden cock up your ass and mouth, you stupid uneducated idiot.

    Where is logic in his statement?

    I've been thinking about the word "smegma" for a couple of weeks now and wondering when that word would come out of someone else's mouth. The word, when translated to my native language, is used to refer to an asshole. Perfect.

    @irene there is none, it’s completely devoid of logic and common sense.

    I don't know what kind of filter we are talking about, but in general terms I think he is not wrong.

    You type query and Google *filters* out stuff that do not satisfy this query and shows what does (in certain order). It imagine it isn't that much work to make Google silently append to query like "memes" with " -Trump" and result would show memes that don't involve Trump (or would show less of those).

    @arraysstartat1 he is implying that you can use a search engine as an upload filter, which is complete and utter nonsense.

    @RantSomeWhere Search engine or algorithms used by it? If quality of results for queries sent to Google search engine is good enough at detecting content then potentially same algorithm could be used during upload on Google services like Youtube.

    @RantSomeWhere "search engine as upload filter"... What?
  • 3
    @arraysstartat1 you’re implying that googles algorithms find images or videos by analyzing their contents, which they don’t. They search a query by looking at image tags, captions, titles, etc.
    A genuine upload filter should not only recognize the contents of an image, it should also be able to determine whether it’s copyrighted content in some giant database, which does not exist yet.

    Also, this upload filter would be easily circumvented by just mistagging an image or giving a video a wrong title.

    Thinking that a simple search engine could reliably detect copyrighted content, especially as a politician, is naive.

    @irene yes, that’s what Mr. Voss implied with his statement.

    @RantSomeWhere or did he? 🤔

    @irene I don’t quite understand what you are trying to say

    @RantSomeWhere I'm just saying that his speech is so obscure that I doubt that you could grasp the true meaning either.

    @RantSomeWhere I don't imply how they work, since AFAIK this is not public knowledge. I only say that they give results that filter content, including videos and images.

    I don't know what accuracy they are going for, but saying that there is no filter at Google is plain bullshit.

    I'm sure that even this Axel Voss does not think that it would reliably detect copyright content, but it would detect some of it. For example Twitch will mute parts of steam on VoD when it detects copyrighted music. I think this is automated.

    @arraysstartat1 but what about copyrighted contend which is used by "fair use"?

    @irene I didn't know that we were discussing potential problems with internet filter implementations. I have only commented on what seems to be rage induced mass idiocy.

    Some guy (Axel Voss whoever that is) points out that Google has algorithms that let them filter content. He says that this means they already have working filter. This is correct. They do have working filter. It is in fact so good, that for some people "googling" is synonymous to "searching".

    Then someone says that he suggested that we use search engine to filter uploads. Did he? When?

    Or that what he said is nonsense. I'm just not seeing that, at least not in that quote.

    @arraysstartat1 Axel Voss is the German politician who brought both Article 13 and Article 11 onto us. In case you’re out of the loop, article 13 makes platform owners directly liable for hosting copyrighted content. In order to prevent copyrighted content from being uploaded, they have to use upload filters, which are heavily criticized.

    The Voss said that google has a working upload filter because it gives you memes when you search for memes. I just assumed that you’d know what I’m talking about if I mention “filters”. The discussion was about _upload filters_ right from the beginning. We simply misunderstood each other. I hope that clears things up.

    Actually, it would demonstrate that it does not work. What Google sees when I type in "memes" is very far from what today's memes actually look like. Rage comic faces and impact font are not today's memes.

    @arraysstartat1 well, that guy didn't think that that filter is powered by a literal supercomputer cluster owned by Google corporation. A thing that is unachievable for almost anyone in the network.

    Who is this asshole?

    Nice smegma use. lols. ++

    @FrodoSwaggins a German politician whom we have to “thank” for Article 11 and 13 of the European copyright act.

    @RantSomeWhere oh. Yeah fuck him. Sounds like a prick that thinks because the sky is blue then obviously space is too.

    @arraysstartat1 Google's (and YouTube's for that matter) search algorithms are secret for the purpose of not having spammers circumvent it. Fraudulent SEO is a real thing. Other than that, they do indeed mostly rely on textual page content and meta tags. The technology isn't ready yet for media-based content filtering. Axel Voss is hopelessly ignorant (or corrupt) on that matter.
