Google Babysitter

Good news that Google have announced they’ll do something about the spoof children’s videos on YouTube. But given how long they’ve taken to do so, I think my cartoon below is justified. Artificial Intelligence is not up to rejecting such videos automatically (it’s an AI-complete task), and there are too many for staff to moderate.

Google Babysitter robot, with TV screen in head showing the video of Peppa Pig slashing
her face. Scared toddler gazes at screen. Robot is narrating, 'And Peppa Pig self-harmed, took to drugs, and died. Google made lots of money, and everyone lived happily ever after — except for a few traumatised children'.

A Google Babysitter robot sits on a chair, with a TV screen in its head showing the notorious video of Peppa Pig slashing her face. A scared toddler gazes at the screen. The robot is narrating, “And Peppa Pig self-harmed, took to drugs, and died. Google made lots of money, and everyone lived happily ever after — except for a few traumatised children.”

Suffer, Little Children

Here’s a cartoon I just drew, following the news that YouTube has banned the Toy Freaks channel.
YouTube master control console in Google HQ. Screen on console shows a Toy Freaks video, with anguished child. There's a switch labelled 'Delete' / 'Leave until New York Times notices',set to the latter position. Coins are pouring out of a hopper on the side of the console.
