"On average, BIGO has to screen 600-700 thousand of livestreaming broadcasts and over 100 million of photographs content daily which are generated by users on our platform. With both AI surveillance monitoring system and a team of surveillance officers based globally we are able to identify 96% of inappropriate content on our platforms with limited manpower. Additionally, the system is continuously learning and picking up new behaviour. Policing of inappropriate content still remains as our company's top priority."
He adds on that this technology solution is extremely versatile and can be applied globally to not just private companies but also for government usages. Recently, Indonesia government ministry KOMINFO had engaged BIGO's AI technology solution to aid in their cyber monitoring. He hopes to have more of such successful partnerships while helping companies and government to incorporate AI technology solutions into their work-frame.
