Mobile app idea #87: Made for Kids
As of January 6, 2019, YouTube now requires creators to label their channels and videos as “made for kids”. This change was made to comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act knowns as COPPA.
A lot of content creators are puzzling about whether or not to label their videos as "made for kids". This is especially true for those contents that were intended for a "mixed-audience". Not labeling your content as "made for kids" is the safe option but you might lose substantial viewers. Lower viewership means lower earnings.
Do you wish there is an easier way to determine if your content is "made for kids"?
The idea is to b build a web and mobile application that analyze your YouTube video to determine if it is kid-safe.
There are many cognitive services from Google, Microsoft, and many others that have pre-trained models to automatically recognize a vast number of objects, places, and actions in stored and streaming video.
It is now possible to leverage these technologies to train your own custom models to classify and track objects within videos.
If you apply the rules for COPPA-compliant videos, these custom trained models can easily score your videos appropriately.
