WITNESS FEATURED IN WIRED UK
We are extremely pleased to announce that our Tech+Advocacy Program Manager Dia Kayyali was recently interviewed by Kate O’Flaherty, at WIRED UK about YouTube’s takedown of critical war crime evidence in Syria.
In the article titled, “YouTube keeps deleting evidence of Syrian chemical weapon attacks,” Dia along with our partners at the Syrian Archive, spoke about the importance of these videos and the complexity of the Google algorithm.
“Algorithmic transparency, in general, is a huge issue, but even more for content takedowns. They don’t have any outside auditing, and that’s a basic necessity of transparency. We don’t know the details of the algorithm: we have pushed and pushed, but we still don’t know,” Dia said.
