According to Wojcicki, the feature is set to roll out in the coming weeks.
Google's video streaming platform has faced criticism following the school shooting in Parkland, Fla. when conspiracy theory videos proliferated on the platform. YouTube eventually pulled the video for violating its policies.
Wojcicki said YouTube will begin to show information from third-party sources, including Wikipedia, to provide facts around widely accepted events, like the moon landing. YouTube's autoplay algorithms appear created to promote increasingly radical content, across politics and other subject areas, in an effort to keep users watching as long as possible, according to Zeynep Tufekci, an associate professor at the University of North Carolina.
Once the features are implemented, a video calling into question events around September 11 or the Apollo Moon landing, for example, could be accompanied by a link to the official Wikipedia page on these events. So, YouTube will find it hard to ensure that the information in the suggested pages is factually correct.
