Human-based content moderation alone cannot scale to meet safety, regulatory, and operational needs, which leads to a poor user experience, high moderation costs, and brand risk. Content moderation powered by machine learning (ML) can help organizations moderate large and complex volumes of user-generated content (UGC) and reclaim up to 95% of the time that their teams spend moderating content manually.
Amazon content moderation services and solutions provide automation and artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities to implement a reliable content moderation solution without requiring ML expertise. Use these services to protect users from harmful exposure while reducing content moderation costs and safeguarding your organization from risk, liability, and brand damage.
