Yandex will use a special robot program to clear search results from pirated content. This was reported by the Vedomosti newspaper.
The new algorithm, developed on the basis of machine learning technologies, should speed up the preparation of a registry of links to illegal video and audio materials. The creation of such a list is provided for by an anti-piracy memorandum that Yandex, Mail.Ru Group and Rambler Group signed with the largest copyright holders in November last year. In the future, links included in the register will be removed from the search results out of court.
According to Vedomosti, by mid-March 2019 Yandex had already removed about 100,000 pages with pirated content from the search results. In the near future, the company expects to increase this number to several million.
