Auditing process for an video creation app?

Anyone have experience with developing a process for auditing videos generated by an app to make sure they fit within the terms of Use (aka making sure people aren't making clothing optional videos)? Have one advisor saying this nut needs to be solved first because this will become a huge problem if the app grows. Trying to figure out some options.

There are a few companies that offer automated content detection, in particular flesh/skin. They usually have solution for stills images but it is not a stretch to extend their usage to video ( they are just a series of stills, after all). LTU technologies has been successful with tools for the law enforcement sector and a company like Idee inc has built solutions for UGC platforms. There are more similar companies out there but these two will give you a strong start. Hope this is useful and yes, your advisor is correct: Could become a nightmare if not audited properly. ~ Paul M

Well movies are a bit different than a sequence of stills (MPEG is not Motion JPEG) . Much of these "skin detection algorithms are proprietary ( a friend of mine with heavy maths degree was doing this for a while for Microsoft). This is a fairly technical area

Many companies use teams of people in low wage countries to review videos, including Youtube. I've know companies that have used teams in the Philippines, Brazil, Mexico and Argentina. Not very subtle yet not technical obviously. nytimes.com/2010/07/19/technology/19screen.html?_r=0

Is nudity the only thing you care about to block? Are hate messages, violence, racism, sexism okay? If not, then you need a pretty damned complex algorithm or well-trained people who 'feel' which videos will enhance the overall experience. I am always fascinated why people are so tuned in on nudity and so 'forgiving' on violence and hate. When is your site going to launch?

Good luck.

What about a "Signal" button which immediately hides the message for review, with the cancellation of the registration after review?
