All the information you need for the European Digital Services Act

The European Digital Services Act is a proposed legislation which aims to modernize the e-Commerce Directive in relation to illegal content, transparent advertising and disinformation online.
It strives to make the internet a safer place for citizens and visitors to the EU, calling an end to harmful misinformation, the sale and purchase of illegal goods and the broadcasting or sharing of harmful content. The terms of the act will apply to all relevant businesses accessible online by EU citizens and they will need to ensure that their platforms are compliant.
Visual Content Moderation

Computer Vision and the Digital Services Act

Content Moderation will be a key operation in ensuring your business is compliant. Using more humans to do this is not the answer!

As visual media often poses the greatest challenge in relation to content moderation, computer vision will play an important role as the DSA comes into effect. The volume of visual media exceeds the human capacity to moderate it. As well as this, the content is simply often too disturbing for most people to handle.

Computer Vision works at machine speed so it can process hundreds of millions of images and videos per day. It has no emotional reaction to the content and it never gets tired. That’s why computer vision is the answer to the increased challenge the DSA may bring to the doors of thousands of companies.
